Write Better Goals for Non-Verbal Children Activity

Write Better Goals for Non-Verbal Children Activity




Description: Sometimes we’re feeling burned out about therapy because we don’t have good, solid goals in place that we can make progress on.  If you’re working on a “communicate wants and needs” goal, you may want to consider revising your goals slightly.  Here are the four areas that I typically write goals for when I have a non-verbal client:

  1. Joint Attention Goals
  2. AAC Goals (Using that AAC, or spoken speech, for functional communication skills)
  3. Imitation Goals (If the child can’t imitate speech yet, work on imitating actions or sound effects)
  4. Following Directions Goals (Start with functional directions used in the classroom)
