Communication (signing)
on: March 4, 2012, 02:24

I am working with a 10 year old boy who is non verbal. He is learning signing and this has opened up a whole new world for him. If asked he will sign what he wants however unless he's asked he will not initiate communication. Is there some way to encourage this? We've tried the visuals and tempting him with preferred activities and toys but have had no success.

I am a school learning support officer. I work in a support unit within a mainstream school. I support children with autism and children that are developmentally delayed.
