Core Vocabulary: Why Use It

Presented by Gail Van Tatenhove, M.S., CCC-SLP
Hosted by UCF CARD
March 15, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
ONLINE via Adobe Connect

This webinar explores the issue of using core vocabulary with children who are beginning communicators who need to use AAC systems, with an emphasis on children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many behavioral programs designed for teaching early communication to children with ASD focus on teaching vocabulary for preferred objects and actions. The Core Vocabulary Approach differs from this philosophy considerably. This presentation will cover: (1) “why” to use core vocabulary; (2) the balance of core with extended vocabulary for a child with ASD; (3) representing core vocabulary; (4) low-tech and high-tech options; (5) critical communication partner skills; and (6) essential visual supports and scaffolds. This approach can work with and without electronic communication devices.

Ft. Lauderdale

View Flyer

The workshop focuses on methods that professionals can use to easily differentiate instruction to reach and teach learners of all abilities, along with improving collaboration with team members and families. A research-based system of purposeful instruction which embraces a “one-size-does-not-fit-all” approach to build a learner’s solid understanding of content and increase his/her expression and participation to share knowledge will be explored in detail. This 4-step method fosters meaningful inclusion – in educational, vocational, home, and community settings – and provides unified instructional practice to get all team members “on the same page.”
