Functional Communication Training

July 16, 2019


WKEC Conference Center – Eddyville, KY

This will be a repeat of the training originally offered March 21. 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.
