Supporting the Development of Emotional Competencies in Children With Complex Communication Needs (CCN)

Blackstone, S., Wilkinson, K., Na, J., & Thistle, J. (November 16, 2013).  Supporting the Development of Emotional Competencies in Children With Complex Communication Needs (CCN).  Seminar at ASHA in Chicago, IL.

Abstract:

Emotional competence is intricately linked to effective social and communication competence. Children with communication challenges face significant barriers in these areas. However, AAC practitioners currently have no evidence-based guidelines to support the emotional development of children with communication challenges. This session offers a framework and preliminary guidelines and strategies.

Learner Outcomes:

Learner Outcome 1: Discuss a framework they can use to address the development of emotional competence in children and adolescents with CCN

Learner Outcome 2: Use the draft of an observation/interview tool designed to focus attention on the development of emotional competencies in children with CCN

Learner Outcome 3: List at least four strategies they can use with a child with CCN to systematically support the development of emotional development
