Footsteps Toward the Future

PRISM_Cover_FINALThis week’s FREE tool is a Communication Assessment Form to help you determine the communication skills needed for a student to fully participate in a particular activity. The conversational and communication skills required at different stages of a given activity can sometimes be overlooked. The form asks you to break the targeted activity into steps to help reveal these hidden challenges. Assessments like this are important for determining interventions that can help students participate in an activity to their fullest potential. For your added use, we’ve included a blank and a filled-out copy to help you envision how it works. Both versions of the form come from CEC’s “Footsteps Toward the Future,” a guidebook for implementing a real-world curriculum for student with intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, and other developmental disabilities.
