Communication in Rett Syndrome - Lariviere & Norwell

Hello Rett Syndrome Educators Network,

Is communication simply making choices or answering yes or no? No, we know it's much richer than that!  Learning how to move your children/students towards “real” communication is crucial to their success.
Please watch and share this recorded presentation by Judy Lariviere, M.Ed., OTR/L and Susan Norwell, M.A. from’s 2014 Conference that was recently posted to our YouTube channel.
You can also access the slides here for better viewing.
In addition, download this exceptional keynote article by Judy Lariviere from Closing the Gap 2014.

The presentations found here in this message replace our monthly live presentation.  We will resume as normal in April.
Your children/students CAN learn to communicate with the right supports!
