Ideas for Initiation of Communication

I found this great post on Pinterest today. Initiation of communication is a necessary step in expanding communication, and one that often needs to be explicitly taught to children with autism. Christine, the author of the Autism Classroom News blog, wrote a great step-by-step post about how it can be taught.

From the post:

First, decide what language skill you want to work on. Do you want the student to request something he or she needs? Do you want him/her to comment on something (e.g., I see a dog before you turn the page of the book)? Do you want him/her to initiate a greeting? The situation you set up will depend on what the skill is you want to address.

Read the blog to find out the next steps.
