This 120-minute recorded webcast will review the literature on assessing and determining appropriate communication modalities, provide a task analysis for each type of communication modality, highlight video examples of communicating across modalities and discuss the pros and cons across various communication modalities.

Many individuals with limited functional communication lack the important skill of manding. Being able to request for one’s own desires and needs is a powerful skill, and without this skill, quality of life may be detrimental. Being able to vocally mand is highly desirable, however, it is not the only way to communicate. American Sign Language, modified sign language, picture exchange systems, and augmentative communication are all various forms of communication. While mand training is similar across modalities, there are unique needs when developing a mand training intervention program for each communication modality.


Upon completion of Mand Training across Modalities: Effective Methods to Teach Functional Communication, participants will be able to:

Identify and select from 5 communication modalities based on consumer needs
Conduct a task analysis related to the communication needs of individuals
Design an intervention plan to increase functional communication
This event will total 100 minutes with a review of developing intervention programs to increase functional communication designed for teachers, BCABA’s and BCBA’s, and other professionals working with individuals with autism and related disorders.
