Description:

 They have words. They can repeat everything. They have memorized entire movies. But is their communication functional? This webinar will look at what is functional verbal communication and what is just 'being verbal'. Children on the Autism spectrum can be verbal and intelligible but still not participate in meaningful communication. Therefore they are missing out on social interactions and learning opportunities that help them grow.  AAC with a verbal child can be motivating, reinforcing, interesting, functional and expanding. This webinar will talk about the pros and cons of using AAC with a “verbal” child.
