Functional Intervention Session

February 17 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

This session will address assessment, decision making/goal setting and practical intervention strategies for working with low-verbal and non-verbal communicators. The session will outline a framework for assessment, decision making and goal setting (SETT framework); an intervention plan that involves a three-pronged plan of action for developing therapy sessions (pragmatics, vocabulary and executive function), working as part of an intervention team and specific ideas for direct intervention using the intervention framework and team, individual and small group therapy approaches. Additional areas of discussion will include using engaging materials and activities, creating naturalistic learning opportunities, and usage of low and non-verbal augmentative communication tools (picture symbols, picture schedules, switches, voice output devices, etc.). Session Outcomes Following the session, the participants will be able to: -describe the SETT Framework and utilize the tool for assessment, decision making, and goal setting -develop therapy sessions using a three-pronged strategy promoting pragmatics, vocabulary and executive function -develop individual, group and collaborative therapy sessions with a variety of engaging materials and activities -provide meaningful contributions as a member of a collaborative team to integrate communication into all activities across the student’s school day CEUs pending
