Communication Temptations


Introduction: Communication Temptations

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can have difficulty using language and initiating spontaneous communication. Communication temptations provide the student with a reason and opportunity to communicate with others. If the student does not yet use language to communicate, this strategy can be used to help expand their non-verbal communication (e.g. gestures, facial expressions, etc.), foster their use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) such as TouchChat, communication boards, signing, or Picture Communication Exchange System (PECS) as well as help promote oral language. If the student already talks and initiates communication, then they can benefit from practice with new vocabulary, combining words together, communicating for different reasons, or trying out different grammatical elements. Communication temptations encourage students to communicate by increasing opportunities for them to engage socially with others. Communication temptations can be used at school and home. Communication temptations involve adults anticipating the student’s needs and allowing the student to attempt to communicate their needs. Communication temptations can give the student more practice being the initiator of communication.
