Session Detail

We CAN Communicate
Core Vocabulary and Teaching Strategies

This series of workshops is designed for staff serving students with complex access and communication needs and will address evidence-based practices for improving instructional practices in the areas of differentiated instruction and social communication. The three part series includes

  1. Engineering the Environment
  2. Creating Communication Opportunities
  3. Core Vocabulary and Teaching Strategies

Each session is designed to stand alone but the most benefit will be obtained from attending all three. District or SSA staff are encouraged to attend in teams.

You CAN be the difference maker for your students! 

Important Session Information:

In this session we will focus on the value of core vocabulary in the classroom and in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. We will also discuss strategies for implementing core vocabulary in the classroom, including embedding core vocabulary into instruction and lesson planning. Effective and evidence-based communication partner training skills will also be introduced and practiced with core vocabulary low-tech boards.

This session will be held in person at the ESC 17 with health and safety protocols in place.
