Every child wants to move. Nothing seems more motivating to our children with complicated, non-ambulatory, bodies than movement. Movement increases arousal level and primes the 'brain-pump' for communication. Movement also promotes self-initiated activities. Presenting communication in both high and low tech ways during a variety of physical activities, creates highly motivating opportunities. This allows teachers and parents to see and incorporate other ways to communicate with these children when they are not in their wheelchairs. Videos of co-treats will help launch your team into cross-discipline implementation of AAC.
Learn the science and research behind movement, level of alertness and language acquisition.
Obtain strategies to work with complicated bodies and access methods for AAC devices
Gather treatment tools for engaging whole bodies for maximum learning opportunities.
