Tip Tuesday! The Nonverbal Child Part 3: Creating a Treatment Plan

Here is the 3rd installment in my Nonverbal Child series, discussing how to create a treatment plan.  Treatment plans in the academic environment versus private practice will undoubtedly be a different process.  However, this presentation includes the basic way in which I create a treatment plan.  Many times I find parents do not understand the process of IEPs or treatment plans and what goes into them.  So I hope this presentation will be able to shed some light on the complexity of the process.

On Friday I will share with you how I write goals and objects when creating treatment plans for these nonverbal kiddos using the functional communication system I determine at the time of assessment!

Disclaimer:  These presentations are based on my clinical experience and should be used as a guide only.  I understand there are many ways to perform evaluations and therapy and I am just sharing how I do it.  These presentations are not comprehensive in nature and you may add or use different testing materials, strategies or techniques.  Feel free to share your experiences below.  However, when commenting please do so with respect and common courtesy.  Thank you.

This presentation has been removed from this post!  You can find Parts 1-4 of this series here!

Looking for the Play ages and stages form I reference in the presentation?  If you've missed it when I posted it back in February, don't worry.  Go here and grab your copy!

Enjoy and happy talking!

    1. Thanks Julie! Can you tell I've had parents ask that ? of me about a million times already?!! Ha! But in all honesty it really is important for them to get on board and realize time is relative, however progress is always the goal! So glad you found me through the link up! I'll have to check out your blog as well! :)
