Holyfield et al. (2018) Poster

  • Individuals with multiple disabilities who communicate through presymbolic behaviors frequently display communication that is idiosyncratic and subtle
  • Unfortunately, these communicative behaviors often go unnoticed or misinterpreted by communication partners
  • This study investigated whether a training could teach middle-school peers of students with multiple disabilities how to accurately interpret presymbolc communicative behaviors
