AbleNet University presents Padmaja Sarathy, MA, Author & Educational Consultant.Educators and parents are always challenged as to how best to meet the significant and extensive needs of children with severe and multiple disabilities. This is one in a series of five workshops is designed to provide techniques, tools and tips that are easy-to-implement to expect higher levels of performance from these children and reduce the barriers imposed by cognitive, communication and motor difficulties.
Children with significant cognitive and communication challenges may not readily initiate communication and may typically use non-verbal forms of communication to express their thoughts and needs. In this session, you will learn how to:
  1.  Provide structured communication opportunities during literacy and daily routine activities to initiate and engage in communication with the aid of assistive technology devices and technology Apps; and
  2.  Use communication as the bridge to literacy learning.
