    Inclusion for All: Communication Strategies Across the Spectrum!

    People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) may also struggle with hearing and vision loss. Some may also grapple with a combined vision and hearing loss, creating exceptional communication challenges.  Such challenges certainly impact individuals’ abilities to experience an inclusive lifestyle, unless they are supported to develop unique mechanisms to communicate their wishes and concerns as well as strategies to develop friendships and share social experiences.

    Join this interactive webinar to explore innovative strategies and tools to support communication with individuals challenged with IDD in combination with combined vision and hearing loss. Webinar discussion will examine the efficacy of communication approaches, including object symbols, basic tactual sign language, gestures, communication cards, picture cues and vibratory devices. Webinar participants will learn techniques for using these tools to support the communication and social interaction essential to creating true inclusion.

    This training is approved to provide 1.0 continuing education hour for LCSW, LMSW and LMHCs. Please indicate if you would like to receive these credits during the registration process.
