If, as they say, more than 90 percent of communication is nonverbal, why is it such a challenge to teach students with emerging communication skills? To engage your students who are nonverbal, it’s important to have a range of strategies that will ensure they are able to access learning and, in some cases, communicate their basic needs. Watch our recorded webinar to develop a toolbox of visual communication resources and strategies that will help make language more concrete and accessible for nonverbal students.

In this on-demand webinar you’ll learn:
  • The why and how of visual communication strategies and the power of symbols to support learning and independence
  • How to apply modifications and accommodations such as Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), American Sign Language and adapted materials in your classroom
  • How to develop and use powerful tools like symbol-supported social stories and visual schedules
