Presented by Maurice Belote. Communication is at the core of everything we do with children and youth who are deafblind. Supporting students who are deafblind to become proficient communicators can challenge family members and even the most skilled and experienced educators. The session will review features of communication that are unique to children who are deafblind and/or who have significant support needs, including the impact of stress and anxiety on communication, using authentic assessment data to drive decision making, managing large transdisciplinary teams, and debunking the myth that it is ever too late to become a competent communicator.
