Independence Through Communication is a modular social skills resource with a difference. Its main focus is the full participation of non-speakers and non-readers who have memory limitations and need structure to learn.
The programme, delivered by a teacher or speech therapist, teaches the use of strategies to ‘scaffold’ responses.
Aim: Five strands of social skills cover listening, expressing yourself, explaining your ideas, making choices and making friends. It is designed for groups of around 6 learners, who follow the programme at their own pace.
Curriculum Targets: Entry Levels One to Three of the Adult Literacy Core Curriculum.
