Essential Communication Skills

This module is designed to introduce service providers and clinicians to elements of effective communication with people with ID. Tips and guidelines are suggested to help service providers identify adaptations to their own communication styles to accommodate potentially reduced vocabulary, general communication skills, levels of comprehension of basic information or language, or challenges in understanding abstract concepts. Finally, this module will provide insight related to behaviour as a function of communication, and outline key steps for enhancing facilitative approaches to communication.
