La Crosse Partners Resource Night – 11/27/2012

Strategies for Encouraging Communication


Presented by

Jackie Schmida, Speech and Language Pathologist
Alia Groth, Senior Behavioral Therapist

Communicating with children with Autism can be extremely difficult and even frustrating for caretakers.  In this informative, insightful presentation the communication process will be broken down to help participants develop a better understanding of how autistic children learn to communicate.  Participants will:

  • Be able to differentiate between receptive and expressive   language
  • Develop understanding of how children communicate
  • Become more familiar with normal speech development
  • Understand basic rules for communicating with children on the spectrum as they are given examples of how these rule should be implemented
  • Gain insights in how to teach children to say what they want
  • Learn about augmentative communications systems to aid children who have little to no vocals

Bring a friend to another family member to join us for this great session filled with information and strategies you can take home and use the very same night.
