Free Talk May 21st in Needham: Beyond Requesting - An Overview of Communication Possibilities Using the iPad

From Boston Children's Hospital

April 20, 2015

The Autism Language Program at Boston Children’s Hospital has identified seven pragmatic functions for which all competent communicators use language, including:
  • requesting;
  • protesting;
  • commenting/labeling;
  • directives;
  • questions;
  • transitions; and,
  • social pragmatics.
This training will illustrate methods used to promote communication in learners with autism for purposes beyond simple requesting, focusing on the iPad as a comprehensive learning tool.

iPad tips and tricks will be shown, as well as various apps and strategies to support language learning and communication. Jennifer Abramson M.S. CCC-SLP from the Autism Language Program will present this information and answer questions.

When:   6:30 - 8:30pm Thursday, May 21 2015

Where: The Charles River Center
                   59 East Militia Heights Road, Needham, MA

This program is free and open to the public. RSVP to Ellen Kilicarslan: ekilicarslan@charlesrivercenter.org
