Dr. MacDonald presents a comprehensive workshop introducing and illustrating The Communicating Partners Model for social and communication development.  The five hour presentation addresses the following issues:

  1. What are some major barriers to children learning to communicate?
  2. What do children need before speech?
  3. How do children develop social habits of language beyond rote performance?
  4. What adult communication strategies have been effective in helping children communicate
  5. How can adult communications styles address behavior problems, intelligibility and beginning literacy?
  6. How have parents been successful in home communication programs? 

The final third of the workshop shows Dr. MacDonald demonstrate the model live with three children, a two year old boy with Down Syndrome, a seven year old girl with autism, and a 12 year old boy with Asperger's syndrome. (5 hours, but lively!)
