Tell Me More - Descriptive Teaching Techniques and Tools


Meeting Description:

Teachers often use referential teaching, requiring recall of factual info or reference to specific terms which are utilized only within precise boundaries of application.  While teaching AAC users, it is imperative to recognize the need to structure inquiry in a way that lends itself to responses that can be constructed using frequently used words, promotes higher level thinking, and is efficient. This session will demo how to utilize descriptive teaching and offer tools to increase ease of implementation.  

The session will touch on:
-selecting AAC/vocabulary through strategic assessment
-developing teaching methods with respect to core vocabulary and academic standards 
-guidance for utilizing standardized assessments, including those with complex needs who may not have an elaborate form of communication


Session Level:  Beginner 

After the session you will receive:

  • A certificate of attendance
  • A 10% discount on any AbleNet assistive technology products (this promotion does not include curriculum products)

After you register a confirmation comes up which contains the option to add webinar to your Outlook, Lotus Notes or Google Calendars. If you "add"  it automatically adjusts to your time zone.
