The Volunteer Advocacy Project (VAP) is a collaborative effort between the Human Development Institute and Build Inclusion, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit corporation, committed to creating natural networks and community access for individuals with disabilities and their families. The program will be facilitated by Dr. Meada Hall of HDI, and Annette Jett, MBA, of Build Inclusion and will feature qualified speakers and volunteers from the DD Network, Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), and other advocacy networks.
This series of professional development modules focuses primarily on the basic elements of supporting communication and language development in students who do not use oral speech and who also may have intellectual disabilities. Not only is communication an essential building block for the development of language REQUIRED for access to the general curriculum, communication is an essential life skill. Student health and safety depends on the extent to which students have regularized gestures, symbols, and augmented or alternative forms of communication. Now more than ever before, technological enhancements make the goal of communication and language development achievable.
