PRC-Saltillo response to COVID-19: prc-saltillo.com/covid-19
Due to public health concerns about the Covid-19 virus, PRC-Saltillo will only be providing in-person trainings when we can comply with CDC and local guidelines, and we feel we can ensure the health and safety of our hosts, attendees, and trainers. As conditions change, trainings may be moved online, as necessary. If you have questions about PRC-Saltillo trainings, please email email@example.com.
Individuals with complex communication needs often struggle with writing as well as communication. If you can’t hold a pencil, how do you learn how to write? In this 60-minute recording of a class previously taught online, you will learn about the developmental stages of writing and alternative pencils that can level the playing field for students with significant disabilities. See how to provide independent, engaging writing opportunities for emergent learners using AAC with a framework that shows you what do to before, during, and after the activity. You’ll see what happens when we add video feedback as a strategy.
Participants will be able to:
1. Describe the 5 stages of emergent writing
2. Name 3 different alternative pencils that provide access to all 26 letters
3. Plan an independent writing activity with access to all 26 letters for an emergent learner using AAC
This class is designed for speech-language pathologists, teachers, paraprofessionals, parents, and anyone with basic knowledge of AAC who want to offer independent, emergent writing activities to beginning communicators of all ages.
