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.
Additionally, Patrick Brune, MS CCC-SLP from Tobii Dynavox will be on-hand to allow you to explore Tobii Dynavox AAC solutions that are helping students be successful at home, in school and life. This workshop will also feature the Tobii Dynavox Learning Lounge where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain hands-on experience with Tobii Dynavox solutions!
Other presenters include Rett University Coaches Kristi Craddock and Kourtney Barnum
