Laying the Foundation for Communication Exchange: Part 1 - How to Start

NCDB_webinar

The National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) will present a two-part webinar on communication development for families and professionals, providing a rationale for the argument that all learners communicate—not that they can learn to communicate, but that they already do. The presenter will discuss the importance of meeting a child where he or she is and consistently responding to behavior in a predictable way. Part 2 of this series will be held on March 21.

The webinar is free and registration is not required.
 

Presenter:

Susan M. Bashinski, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Coordinator at Missouri Western State University
 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain one way in which 3 or 4 of the key “Communication Reminders” discussed in the webinar can be part of one’s own daily life practice.
  • Describe elements of a routine that can make a critical contribution to a child’s ability to feel sufficiently safe and secure to reach out to those around her in a communicative manner.
  • Contrast the differences between (a) nonsymbolic and symbolic and (b) non-intentional and intentional communication.
