Positive Behavior Supports in Compass Software


Training Type: DynaVox T10/Compass

Description:

Positive Behavior supports are seamlessly integrated into the new DynaVox Compass software and provide a unique, evidence-based tool for promoting successful behavior (and communication). A range of techniques are supported within each communication topic, including: first/then charts, social narratives, visual rules, contingency map, timers and token reinforcement. These tools have been found to be invaluable for individuals who have greater difficulty in shifting attention from one task to another. This may be due to a greater need for predictability in understanding what will be coming next. The Positive Behavior Supports in the DynaVox Compass software provide transition strategies are techniques used to support individuals during changes, or disruptions to activities, settings, or routines.
