Summary: This training is geared toward all CISS Respite Caregivers who support someone who does not use their voice to communicate (i.e. "non-speaking" / "nonverbal"), and those who are interested in learning more about effective Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)
To further the continuing education of our amazing caregivers, CISS offers monthly staff training classes. The topics are chosen from feedback received in our annual staff survey. Speakers will include members from our admin team, parents, other Respite Caregivers, and community members considered experts in the topic matter.
