Happy Friday! We have a heart melting story to share with you all! Meet Savannah! She recently got a puppy and this sweet dog needed a name. Savannah's family got the flip books out and Savannah spelled b-e-a-r using her flip book and no prompting at all. We love seeing the flip book changing lives and giving those who are non-verbal a voice. ... See MoreSee Less

Join us for a day focused on real-world, hands-on practice with communication skills, strategies and the academic areas of reading and writing for students with complex needs. This full-day workshop will begin with ensuring communication access is woven throughout everyday activities while modeling and practicing with partners using Rett University’s 4-Grid Communication Book and Tobii Dynavox’s SonoPrimo, soft-tech language grids. Later in the day, we will address the academic skills of reading and writing for students with complex needs that are often thought to be impossible for individuals with Rett Syndrome and other complex disabilities. The strategies and techniques that have been developed and used with students worldwide are proven to get students actively participating in reading and writing. Techniques for reading to and with kiddos while modeling communication will be demonstrated in videos and then put into practice during the workshop. Participants will actively use ABC and Core Word Communication Flipbooks to build a short story with a partner, focusing on understanding and improving upon the interaction needed to cultivate solid communication and educational exchanges. Private 1:1 Consults with Susan Norwell available Sat, Oct 14 and Sun, Oct 15. Register at gp2c.webconnex.com/birmingham
