Intraverbal & Communication Course Overview

This course teaches you the very basics of communication. Just a simple exchange between two people. Intraverbals teaches your child to start communicating with you in fun ways such as using everyday phrases, animal sounds, song fill ins, and later on when your child has a basic understanding of how communication works, asking WH-questions, simple conversations, and pragmatics (reciprocal statements). Intraverbals teach your child how an exchange between to people goes, what it looks like and what is expected of your child to happen (social expectations). Intraverbals are a stepping stone for your child to learn to have everyday conversations with you, the family, teachers, friends, and other people. .

Intraverbal can be used using word, signs and or electronic communication devices.
