AGOSCI National Tour 2022

 

Presented by Fiona Beauchamp 

Understanding movements for accessing technology and communication

AGOSCI is thrilled to partner with Fiona Beauchamp for our 2022 National Tour. Join Fiona as she explores movement, sensory processing and communication!

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. 

See our event flyer here and please share with your networks.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will have a greater understanding of a range of different movements and the impact this has on access to communication (electronic and non-electronic).
  2. Participants will have a greater understanding of strategies to support how to develop healthy movements to support long-term access.
  3. Participants will have a greater understanding of sensory processing and strategies to support access to communication.
  4. Participants will have a greater awareness of direct access and alternate access challenges and strategies.
