Teaching Critical Communication Skills - Great Falls

Great Falls   November 29, 2022     8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

You will learn how to teach critical communication skills that lead to greater independence in the home, work, school and community settings. We review nine specific skills: requesting reinforcers, requesting help, requesting a break, indicating yes and no, waiting, following directions, schedule-following and transitioning. Through lecture, demonstrations, video and participatory activities, you will acquire specific teaching strategies that are relevant for anyone who has limited communication skills, regardless of their communicative modality (e.g., Picture Exchange Communication System [PECS], signing, device use, speech).   (course description)

Attendance is limited to 40 people. Seven OPI renewal units are available for this training.
