They say communication is key. Well, for us kids in this school it doesn't come naturally. How to express ideas, obtain desires, share information, and interact with others are all forms of communication that we focus on during these sessions to enhance our intentional communication.
Are you able to share your ideas and feelings without talking. Not easy, huh? Here our teachers are well versed in alternative and augmentative communication. So, you are wondering how we do it... Are you thinking side language? Wrong!
Facial expressions, manual gestures, tone of voice, body orientation are all components of language and used to express our feelings without talking.
Did you know art therapy is also a form of communication? Yup! We use it here all the time to develop our communication skills. What a great and fun way to express ourselves.
