This webinar uses descriptions, videos, and discussions to address several communication difficulties common among echolalic autistic children. Following a brief overview of echolalia and some earlier communication interventions, the webinar will focus mainly on specific ways to help echolalic learners to:
-Use “I/me/my” for self-reference
-Answer and ask Wh and yes/no questions
-Engage effectively in conversation
Participants will be able to:
1. Describe a functional communication process for increasing self-generated language while decreasing echolalia
2. Explain the use of language modeling to decrease pronoun reversal and establish the use of “I/me/my” for self-reference
3. List three activities for teaching echolalic children to answer or ask questions.
