Communication Systems

The Lifeskills Program provides alternative forms of communication for our non-verbal students to make their needs known. An assessment and consultation is completed by the District Speech Pathologist, who recommends a specific communication program.

The staff of the program is trained in the following:

·         Use of visual scripts and  schedules;

·         Augmentative communication devices;

·         Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS);

·         Picture boards.
