This powerful training experience, exploring both soft and high tech options (such as eye gaze devices, ABC and CoreWord flip books) is designed to support those working/living with nonverbal individuals with the key foundations of communication and literacy learning. What makes this experience different from any other is the full day workshop with extensive real-time practical use, application and simulation experiences designed to enable participants to thoroughly learn essential “how-tos” of communication and literacy skills. The additional half day experience will allow the transfer of the newly learned skills into their own experiences (with their child, student or client) within a wide range of environments and age groups- home, classroom, community, etc.
