ECT Course Coming to Ontario
Environmental Communication Teaching Training Coming to Canada The focus of Environmental Communication Teaching (ECT) training is functional communication in natural environments. These sessions are taught by renown AT consultant and instructor Kelly Fonner. For this series of training we are focusing on the use of AAC strategies and tools in the school environment. The full ECT training is a 5 day intensive, school year process. The training dates occur across the school year. Participants are expected to attend as teams that choose two students to apply the ECT strategies with during school activities between the trainings. The research findings recommend that the primary team consist of an AAC user's teacher, SLP and teaching assistant. All other staff for the chosen students are welcome including family members. This course starts November 23rd in Winnipeg and November 24th in Mississauga. For more information visit the Bridges Professional Development page.
