FREE 2-Part Webinar Series on Communication Development


February 28, 2018


12pm PT / 1pm MT / 2pm CT/ 3pm ET

60 minutes


This presentation, Part 1 of 2 webinars on communication development for families and professionals, will provide a rationale for the argument that all learners communicate—not that they can learn to communicate, but that they already do. The presenter will discuss the importance of meeting a child where he or she is and consistently responding to behavior in a predictable way. Part 2 of this series will be held on March 21.

The webinar is free and registration is not required.


Susan M. Bashinski, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Coordinator at Missouri Western State University

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain one way in which 3 or 4 of the key “Communication Reminders” discussed in the webinar can be part of one’s own daily life practice.
  • Describe elements of a routine that can make a critical contribution to a child’s ability to feel sufficiently safe and secure to reach out to those around her in a communicative manner.
  • Contrast the differences between (a) nonsymbolic and symbolic and (b) non-intentional and intentional communication.
