This badge relates to chapter 5 of the Positive Behaviour Support e-Book which builds on the previous chapter which focused on communication. The previous chapter explored what communication is and why good communication is important within a PBS approach. This chapter will consider communication in more detail and will look at specific tools and approaches that can help build good communication for people with learning disabilities.
The aim of this chapter is to help you learn about specific supports to communication, in particular visual supports.
