Summary

Put this culturally sensitive, field-tested intervention guide to work as you show caregivers how to become aware of their child's early communicative behavior. Specifically designed for use with infants, preschoolers and young children with multiple disabilities who haven't yet developed a functional communication system, PLAI teaches caregivers how to

  • recognize communication cues
  • learn what their child likes or dislikes
  • establish routines
  • use turn-taking games to initiate interaction

Reproducible interview handouts let you record the child's initial communication abilities. You'll also get photocopiable recording sheets to monitor progress -- available in both English and Spanish. And to better demonstrate key strategies to caregivers, the accompanying video depicts interactions between children with different disabilities and their families in natural settings.
