In this course, participants will develop an understanding of how to develop vocal behaviour for learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Participants will be able to identify why vocal verbal behaviour is the preferred method of communication and the skills necessary for conducting language intervention. Additionally, participants will describe vocal shaping procedures and the procedure for teaching phonetic hand cues. This workshop will also give professionals the descriptions of procedures to teach hand cues in improving articulation and to teach sign language with a time-delay to increase vocalizations. This presentation includes video examples and resources for participants.
