Movement impacts all communication, whether it is gesture, sign, speech, targeting to a switch or using hand/eye movements to access a non electronic communication system or electronic communication system. All communication requires movement. What is challenging for many individuals who are neurodiverse, or have complex movement challenges is that their movements may be different or their sensory seeking/avoiding behaviours impacts how they access technology and communication.
This workshop will support participants to be able to understand movement challenges, how to observe the movements (including neurodiverse individuals) and learn some strategies to support access to technology and communication, which they can use straight away in practice.
