Building Social Communication: From Story Co-Construction to Narratives

MA Special Education Instructor, Previous- Professor at Northeastern Illinois University, Current- Full-time Professor at Rett University

Over the last few years, I have been working hard to help girls with Rett Syndrome be able to share their own stories and create their own narratives. I was inspired by my granddaughter who was able to use her whole body and limited language at the time to tell me a story. I knew then I had to figure out how our girls could effectively do this. I read all I could on constructing narratives and voila, this course was born! It’s a short course with more to come. It gives the basics of creating narratives and a lot on how to edit and use the story sets I constructed for the Tobii eye gaze device and the iPad to record the stories the girls create.

Included in this course are story page sets for both Tobii Communicator 4 and Communicator 5 as well as for the iPad app GoTalkNow.
