17 Communication: The whys and hows

18 Golden Rules of Communication  Go to child to gain attention  Call child’s name  Repeat the same phrase  Use something visual  Wait for response.

19 Strategies to aid understanding: The KISS rule:  Keep  It  Short and  Simple

20 Why?

22 How? Body language:

23 Differences: How do I get attention? How am I social? What do I communicate? How do I communicate? How do I understand people?

24 How do we help? Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)

25 Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)  Why do we use PECS? To teach the child to initiate communication. (To approach a person to make a request rather than making it into thin air!) PECS phases (there are 6) parallel typical language development. Develops requesting, making sentences, developing vocabulary concepts, responding to “what do you want?” and commenting.

26  1. Picture exchange. One picture.  2.Persistence and distance.  3. Discrimination  4. making “ I want….strip”  5. Responding to “What do you want?”  6. Commenting and developing concepts: “I see..” and “I hear…” Phases of PECS.
