This seminar is designed for school teams.  You MUST HAVE at least 2 people (one teacher and one SLP), and you may bring 2 additional team members. This workshop is for anyone working with young children or children functioning at young levels, who have difficulty communicating and interacting with others. This includes children with significant physical and multiple challenges and/or young children on the more severe end of the autism spectrum. Information shared will be useful to parents, teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other supportive personnel. What Is It? This two-day presentation focuses on children who face significant physical and multiple challenges as well as those children on the more severe end of the autism spectrum.  It will address questions such as: What are we learning from brain research that can help us understand how children learn?  How do we motivate children and provide opportunities for active learning? What strategies help give these children a sense of control and facilitate interaction and communication?  How does the child on the severe end of the autism spectrum perceive the world and how does this impact learning and communication?  How does Cortical Visual Impairment impact learning?  This workshop will introduce the concept of providing a receptive aided language-learning environment, and demonstrate how learning alternative and augmentative forms of communication can and should parallel the developmental process that typical children go through in learning speech. ---- THIS WORKSHOP IS 2 DAYS --- Please Note That Attendance at BOTH DAYS of Trainings Is Required. -- 2ND DAY, TUESDAY, MARCH 1ST ***************(*APPROVED FOR ASHA CREDITS -- 100% ATTENDANCE REQUIRED)
