ComStrat training for children & family members
Children: older children can benefit from comm. strategies training; can use formal instruction, real world learning, or combo of both. Training should focus on effective listening behaviors; teach kids how to ask for clarity if they did not understand or hear a message; teach kids other ways to comm. if they cannot verbalize what they want to say, or is what they are verbalizing is not understood. Begin with formal instruction/ guided learning then transfer to real world training.
