As an instructional autism special education teacher, I facilitate a parent support group at my school for parents raising children with special needs. The group is designed to support and encourage parents and caregivers through collaboration, education, and resources. We cover many different topics, one of which is communication.
This power point presentation provides information and resources as it engages parents in learning about ways to increase language and communication at home through Picture Exchange Communication System and other strategies. It reviews the diagnosis of autism and how communication is connected. The presentation is parent- friendly and easy to facilitate, as it provides discussion questions and extra activity opportunities in the notes section. This presentation could also be used for a professional development to staff. I hope you can use this to increase autism awareness and education!
