The Every Move Counts, Clicks and Chats Sensory-Based Approach: Communication and Assistive Technology Manual presents sensory-based activities in a framework that supports and encourages communication. Without sensory input, children may not develop the communication skills necessary to support participation and interaction in their world. Everyone communicates in some way. It is our challenge to recognize and respond to that communication.

Every Move Counts Clicks and Chats: Sensory-based Strategies for Communication and Assistive Technology. Kansas City: EMC, Inc., 2007.

The Every Move Counts, Clicks and Chats: Family Guide provides communication assessment and implementation strategies for families of children with complex communication needs. Family members are equal members of the IEP team and need to be confident and informed participants of the team. If assistive technology is introduced, it is more important than ever to incorporate family input and for the family to be comfortable providing that input. Information from both the home and school environment is essential in the development, implementation and evaluation of the effectiveness of communication systems.
