Key #3: My Communication Style - Interactive Google Slides
"My Communication" is a transformative and essential section within My Transition Portfolio, authored by Barbara Beck. This empowering component of the portfolio equips students with disabilities with the tools and skills they need to communicate effectively, fostering self-expression, connection, and success in their transition to adulthood.
In "My Communication," students embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, exploring various modes of communication and developing strategies to effectively convey their thoughts, needs, and desires. This section recognizes the fundamental role of communication in all aspects of life, from personal relationships to education and future employment.
Through engaging activities and prompts, students are encouraged to reflect on their current communication skills, strengths, and areas for improvement. They learn to identify their preferred communication methods, whether verbal, nonverbal, written, or technological. By understanding their own communication style, students gain confidence in expressing themselves authentically and advocating for their needs.
