Teaching Critical Communication Skills Training - 2018 - 009610
This training discusses how to teach critical communication skills that lead to greater independence in the home, work, school, and community settings for all learners regardless of communicative modality. There are many skills that are typically taught in communication intervention programs. Individuals with complex communication needs, however, must master certain critical communication skills if they are to function independently in the home, community, school, and/or vocational setting. One set of critical skills deals with expressive communication – skills individuals need to convey important messages to others. These skills are crucial because if a person cannot calmly and effectively communicate wants and needs, he or she may demonstrate a range of contextually inappropriate behaviors.
