Integrating Communication Skills into Functional Routines & Activities.
Stremel, Kathleen
This training module on integrating communication skills into functional routines and activities is from the Mississippi Early Education Program for Children with Multiple Disabilities, a program designed to train Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Part H service coordinators and service providers to use family centered strategies. The objectives of the training are to teach practitioners to: (1) gain knowledge of the different forms and functions of communication; (2) gain skills in developing a communication "map" for an individual learner; (3) gain knowledge to analyze a learner's physical and social environment; (4) gain skills in selecting interactive activities across domains for initial integration of communication skills; (5) gain skills in developing a total task analysis with frequent opportunities for receptive and expressive communication skills; and (6) gain knowledge in determining individual learner needs to determine "interactor competencies". Included in the module are a pretest and posttest, activities to illustrate concepts, a communication map, a form to chart levels of family involvement, a form for ecological analysis, and a sample routine for undressing, bathing and dressing. Transparencies are provided. (CR)
