Glossary of Action Verbs

All the L2LPs leraning outcomes verbs are demonstrated through communication with their peers and/or adults. Communication underpins all learning and is fundamental to the capacity to transfer learning. Communication and language form the foundation for all other PLUs. Learning in this unit covers both verbal and non-verbal ways of receiving and giving information. Language development requires social interaction between the student and a communication partner. Communication for these students can be enabled and progressed with aids like augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), e.g. visual and object cues, verbal prompts, facial expressions, gestures, sign language (such as ISL), electronic devices, Braille (or Moon4) and the written form. Through developing communication skills students enhance their social interactions and improve their self-esteem.
