21. Supporting Cognitive and Social Communication: A Functional Neurodevelopmental Approach

November 8, 2021

This session will complement session one to provide an interdisciplinary, ‘hands-on’, evidence-based approach to the assessment and support of children and youth with brain injuries, with an aim to maximize functional outcomes. Consideration will be given to the role of families and communication partners including teachers, clinicians, and peers, in addition to the development of self-advocacy for the young person. Practical strategies to facilitate developmentally appropriate, optimal cognitive-communication and social communication will be discussed along with the need to consider both the child’s/young person’s current status along with longer-term developmental status, needs, and outcomes.
