Webinar format

This multi-session virtual training is for team members working directly with students with autism. The Communication Toolkit training is designed to:

  • Support understanding of communication in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) including formal and informal measurement of communication abilities.
  • Help participants develop a rationale and plan around “where to start” when developing communication systems for students with early emerging communication skills including coaching communication partners for success.
  • Discuss Evidence Based Practices (EBPs) and match practice to the characteristics of individual students with ASD.
  • Give participants a variety of interventions to support students with ASD in developing a functional communication system.
  • Follow up with participants through virtual coaching (1 hour requirement within 6-8 weeks of the one-day training completion).

The Communication Toolkit training is designed for those who already have a foundational understanding of ASD.
