Supporting Communicative Competence Professional Learning Series Sponsored by The Ohio Center for Deafblind Education

Developing communicative competence for children with combined hearing-vision loss, sensory impairment, and/or multiple disabilities can be challenging. The Supporting Communicative Competence Professional Learning Series includes seven one-hour virtual sessions focused on core and fringe vocabulary, considering the needs of children with visual and hearing impairment, using core as part of the curriculum, developing peer supports, fostering communication partner strategies and social networks, and preparing students with complex communication needs for transition, and more. Special and general preschool and school-age educators, related services personnel (e.g., speech language pathologists), paraprofessionals, administrators, parents, and others are invited to attend. One (1) contact hour will be provided for each session attended upon completion of the session evaluation.
