Functional Communication Training

March 21, 2019


Lake Barkley Convention Center

In this training we will answer the question, “What is functional communication?” and how it may look different for each communicator. Participants will discuss barriers and myths regarding functional communication. We will then delve into a process for evaluating and identifying where and how to begin the process of teaching functional communication to our students. Considerations such as meaningful context, vocabulary selection, environment, interaction strategies, and communicative opportunities will be discussed.
