My Child Doesn’t Talk: The Next Steps: A Deeper Look Into Strategies for Children with Communication Needs

In this training, we will continue to build on the skills and strategies acquired during the first training of My Child Doesn’t Talk. These research-based strategies will address the language needs of children with developmental disabilities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and others. We will look at preplanning for communication needs and how that looks as far as low tech and high tech devices. Parents will be given techniques to use in the home and in the community to aid in their child’s communication needs and enable them to acquire a higher level of skills.

Note: You do not have had to attend the first training to attend this one!
