Overview

Flexible and functional, the Communication Supports Checklist (CSC) provides explicit guidelines for meeting the communication needs of people with severe disabilities such as mental retardation, autism, and other disorders. This practical tool includes blank forms ready to copy and use: The Checklist - a multi-page form for identifying program strengths and weaknesses, and The Action Plan - a guide to making programmatic changes and increasing the effectiveness of services and quality of life. Helpful example forms completed by actual users of the CSC in school and residential settings illustrate the CSC in action. For administrators, occupational therapists, physical therapists, service coordinators, speech-language pathologists, and teachers, the CSC is a great way to ensure quality, person-centered services.
