During this workshop, Oonagh will discuss what constitutes 'social communication' and explore why it is such an important stage in social, communication and language development. This workshop will highlight a range of research based curricula and strategies. We will then explore how these strategies can inform effective intervention planning. This workshop is suitable for parents and/or educators who work with children with limited communication skills.


In the workshop, Oonagh will discuss and summarise the following topics and themes:


  • What are Social Communication skills.
  • Intervention: Evidence-Based curricula that target social communication skills.
  • Core elements in fun, play based learning for young children with limited communication skills.
  • Strategies that can be implemented in the home and school setting to promote social communication skills.
