When we assess communication skills in our clients, we are looking for skills that are missing or delayed and the barriers that may prevent those skills being taught.
Some examples of barriers might be;
- Children who exhibit strong and persistent negative behaviours which impede teaching and learning, such as aggression, tantrums, self injurious behaviours.
- Limited interest in social interactions.
- Difficulty asking for the things that they want and need.
- Behaviours that compete with learning such as self stimulation or hyperactive behaviour.
This month we’ll dive a little deeper into three common barriers that can prevent a child, young person or adult from learning.
If your family is faced with any of these barriers and you would like more information please contact us.
