On location training with Tobii Dynavox

2018: Communicating Beyond Requesting (St. Mary's Hospital, Athens, GA)

On location training
Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Training Type: Implementation Workshop


Course description:  Where do you typically start when introducing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)? If you are like most people, you probably start with activities where an individual can request a motivating object or action. But, what happens next? In this session, we will help you develop strategies that go beyond requesting; into the world of asking questions, making comments, protesting and expressing opinions. We will use lecture, discussion, video examples, and small-group activities to explore the power communicative functions, vocabulary selection and teaching strategies to facilitate communication beyond requesting.

Learning Outcomes: (1) Name two communicative functions beyond requesting and describe why they are powerful. (2) Identify two different communication tools that support interactions beyond requesting. (3) List two partner communication strategies that will facilitate communication beyond requesting.
