VARYING Communication skills with Autism

I think that Sign Language does help students with Autism or any disability communicate with others.
Some Background Research
(National Autism Resources, n.d)
The research that was done at the National Autism Resources Center has stated “Research and evidence has shown that in many cases Sign Language has actually helped children with Autism become more verbal.”
There are some draw backs though.
Not everyone understands Sign Language; this can hinder social interaction and cause the autistic child to become isolated. In some cases children with severe cognitive disabilities or attention deficits may not be able to learn Sign Language.

2) Do they use Sing Language with or without prompting in the classroom?
1) Do the students use Sign Language?
2b) Do they use Sign Language with prompting?
5) How often do the students use Sign Language?
The chart includes what I observed while watching the students in a classroom with disabilities.
After the person clicks on the icons to form a sentence it will appear in the this box, and the voice will project what is meant to be communicated.

This shows a simpler model of a Dyna Vox to be used for a younger child that may not be able to read. As it shows only pictures.
