Title: Supporting Communication in Individuals with ASD – Pakenham
Date/Time: Thursday 07 December, 2017 • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Many children with ASD have difficulty developing expressive language skills and the ability to process and understand verbal information. They may also have difficulties with nonverbal communication, such as the use of body language, eye contact and facial expressions. The extent of a person’s language difficulties will also depend on his or her intellectual ability and their social development.
This workshop will give participants an understanding of the development of receptive and expressive language skills and the impacts deficits in language skills can have on a person’s ability to effectively communicate in their daily lives.
The workshop will also introduce participants to strategies that can be implemented to support the development of language skills, particularly when working with non-verbal children. As many children with ASD are visual learners, the workshop will outline visual supports that can be used to support communication in pre-school & primary school-aged children.
