LEARN WITH ADRIENE: SIGN LANGUAGE COURSE
Adrienne knows how to teach sign in a way that helps you remember. This course is for people who have always wanted to learn Sign Language, but feel intimidated. It’s organized in quick short modules that set you up for success.
It’s perfect for SLPs and special education teachers who need to know basic Sign Language vocabulary to use with clients, students, or patients in their speech therapy sessions. I use sign in conjunction with teaching Core Vocabulary to my students with complex communication needs.
This is a FREE assessment tool that you need in your SLP toolbox if you work with children who have complex communication needs. The Communication Matrix has created a this assessment tool to help families and professionals easily understand the communication status, progress, and unique needs of anyone functioning at the early stages of communication. It’s especially helpful for describing stages and levels of communication for the emerging communicators. This has been invaluable for me in my work with primary students in functional skills classrooms.
