Practical and concise, this introductory guide is filled with real-world tips and strategies for anyone working to improve the communication of children with moderate, severe, and multiple disabilities. Emphasizing the link between behavior and communication, three respected researchers transform up-to-date research and proven best practices into instructional procedures and interventions ready for use at home or in school. Special educators, speech-language pathologists, behavior therapists, and parents will learn about early and pre-linguistic communication, communication signals, the relationship between challenging behaviors and communication, and communication and learned helplessness. Illustrative case studies and useful forms are also included in the volume.
