Increasing Opportunities for Alternative Communication with Non-Verbal Children (Part 2)

Increasing Opportunities for Alternative Communication with Non-Verbal Children (Part 2)

Increasing Opportunities for Alternative Communication with Non-Verbal Children (Part 2)

In the last blog, we looked at some specific communication devices and strategies that can support non-verbal children in expressing themselves. But outside of technology, there are other ways that you can encourage communication and interaction.

Most importantly, keep your child involved. You want them to be a part of daily activities as well as special events. Just because they aren’t talking in the traditional sense, doesn’t mean they can’t make valuable contributions. They’re part of your family and should be made to feel just as important as everyone else.

 

Have confidence that with practice, support, and time, your non-verbal child will be able to communicate with you and others in a meaningful and engaging way.
