We all need to collaborate to create opportunities for our students to learn, to actively participate and engage in activity within their classroom day. This is, frequently, a huge challenge to the teachers and therapists who serve students with complex bodies and who additionally have language, visual, and/or motor processing problems. This workshop will focus on how to bring the teaching of language and the need for movement together in activity for these students, so that language and communication, through the use of AAC and AT can grow. It will include task analysis, teaching core language, and supporting postural control within the context of the classroom and age appropriate activity. This course will be offered for the younger student (preschool –elementary school) and the older student (middle school-high school).

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify 3 phrases, with correct grammatical structures, which will be taught within a physical activity.
  • Define the term “mobility” within the context of task engagement.
  • Identify 3 physical characteristics of an “active postural control“ position in their students with complex bodies when engaged in classroom tasks.
