Techniques for interviewing people with communication disabilities or differences.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Knowledgeable use of effective interviewer strategies, including supported communication and strategic use of wait time and conversational techniques with verification, can lead to more effective interviews (Wilson & Kim, 2019; Teachman & Gibson, 2018). Visual tools are also growing in use and can have a number of different purposes within an interview (Glegg, 2019). For example, pictographic supports, visual rating scales, and other tools can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful interview with individuals with communication disabilities or differences. In this hands on workshop, we will demonstrate and give you a chance to practice communication supports and strategies that can improve the results of interviews conducted with those who have communication disabilities or differences.
