Episode #038: How to Help Toddlers and Preschool-Aged Students with Autism Communicate
Knowledge is power. When you know more, you’re going to understand more. If you are listening real time, my brand new toddler course launches this week! I have created the course, Start Communicating Today, for parents and professionals to help their toddlers and preschool-aged students with Autism communicate.
This ASHA certified course, from the set-up to material, is parent-friendly. With Covid, there are a lot of families on waitlists or who aren’t able to get the service level they need because of safety concerns. This is a great course for anyone with a child with Autism, a struggling communicator, and even those waiting for a diagnosis. By signing up, you gain access to the course AND access to a private Facebook group full of members of both this toddler course and my school-aged course. This page is a place of community, dialogue, and feedback.
Start Communicating Today is a 5-hour course broken up into 7 Modules. This course is full of great information you can actually use in your everyday therapy practices. I was very systematic in the creation of this course. You will see these modules build upon each other in a flow of importance. Every single module comes with a printable, to reference as a resource in everyday therapy.
I created this course to answer the question; what do we work on with students who are early learners and not communicating on their own? These modules provide detailed information, resources, examples, and even video tutorials on implementing these best practice tools.
The Seven Modules:
Assessments: The “Gold Standard” Assessments, what assessments do I find helpful, and all of the points that make up a good assessment.
Goal development: How to set goals that drive the success of intervention for toddler age students.
Foundational Skills of Communication: Expressive Language, Communication, Play, and Joint Attention.
Materials: The language developing materials I use with preschool and toddler-aged students.
Group skills: How to frame group therapy and resources and ideas for planning.
Training: Creating a cohesive team for parents, paraprofessionals, and therapists.
Data Collection: How to capture and use data while maintaining engagement.
I have been able to connect with amazing parents and therapists who have taken my courses through the Facebook group. I am so excited to be able to share this information with you. Please reach out to me if you have any questions, and be sure to sign up for my free webinar, Autism Strategies for Toddlers and Preschool Aged Students.
