Event description

Description

For some children with complex communication needs, it is the method of accessing the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) system that is significantly affecting their development of intelligible, autonomous communication. These children, who have significant physical and/or sensory challenges, often need to learn movements to access AAC systems.

This intensive five day workshop will provide participants with an in depth opportunity to explore the movement differences associated with cerebral palsy, other significant neurological movement impairments (eg Rett Syndrome, Prader Willi Syndrome), and severe sensory processing challenges. There will be a focus on identifying these posture and movement challenges in relation to their impact on communication development, assessment and intelligibility. A range of strategies and a process to teach movements for communication will be demonstrated.
