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 kids 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.

Often the majority of communication partners with whom complex students interact throughout their day are adults; time spent truly communicating with peers is very limited or difficult to coordinate given the multiple demands on all students’ time. This live webinar will address the importance of students with complex communication needs having consistent opportunities to interact with and naturally form connections with their peers. Having peers with whom students truly connect is essential to a positive and enriched school experience that naturally supports communication and learning, and above all, happiness.

This webinar represents a starting point for building connections for students with complex needs at school. Participants will learn strategies for capitalizing on mainstream opportunities to support connections with peers through communication and participation. The following topics will be addressed:

A model for identifying a student’s current communication partners at school.

Essential components to include in training for student’s school team members to “jumpstart” the process – student needs to be connected with adults at school.

Strategies for supporting the student as a true member of the regular education class for mainstreaming or full inclusion

Providing opportunities for connections to form naturally through the use of technology for quick and easy set-up.

Examples will be shared about how students with complex communication needs are naturally connecting with peers throughout their day and the tools and strategies that have used to support them. A resource list with references and links to tools will be included in the course.

This live webinar will have a format of a 45- minute presentation followed by questions from participants for the rest of the hour or so.

JUDY LARIVIERE is an assistive technology specialist and occupational therapist with a master’s degree in educational psychology with an area of concentration in special education.

ACCESS TO THE WEBINAR WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE 15 MINUTES BEFORE START TIME AND CAN BE FOUND IN YOUR CURRENT COURSES FOLDER OF YOUR RETT U ACCOUNT.
