In this exciting workshop, presenter Jill Waegenaere, M.A., CCC-SLP, will describe nine critical communication skills required by all communicators, independent of their communicative modality. We distinguish between communication that is spontaneous, responsive, or imitative. When people cannot initiate or otherwise calmly use these skills, many serious behavior problems are likely to arise. These skills are broadly divided between those n e e d e d b y “speakers’ ’ (e x p r e s s i v e s k i l l s ) v e r s u s t h o s e n e e d e d b y “listeners’’ (receptive skills). Participants will learn effective training strategies for children who speak or sign as well as those using augmentative or alternative communication systems. This workshop is a must for anyone working and/or living with people with complex communication needs. It is an important adjunct to training in Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), but also stands alone for those who have not completed PECS training. Parents, caregivers, and professionals alike will benefit from this day. The workshop is made possible from funds raised at the 2012 Walk for Autism sponsored by RiverView Health. Registration for the day will be held from 7:30 am- 8:00 am. The workshop will Business Directory In need of a particular product or service? See what our Chamber Members can offer you.

RiverView Health to hold free ‘A Matter of Balance’ Classes for anyone concerned about falls
Classes Begin Oct. 14th, Register Now RiverView Rehab Services will once again be holding A Matter of Balance classes for anyone who has fallen in the past, has restricted activities because of falling concerns or is worried about falls. The classes will teach skills in improving balance flexibility and strength. A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels. Eight two-hour sessions will be led by certified coaches on Mondays from 1 pm – 3 pm, Oct. 14th through Dec. 2nd in the RiverView Health Classroom. During the sessions, participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home and exercise to increase strength and balance. The class is taught by RiverView Physical Therapist Assistants LueRae Geihsler and Amber Finseth. The class is free, thanks to continued support from Bob and Carla Roppel, owners of the Prescription Shoppe in Crookston. The Roppel’s provided the seed money to start the program through the RiverView Foundation in 2010. They continue their commitment to the Foundation and the community by supporting the program. “Carla and I understand the importance of the teachings of the Matter of Balance Program,’’ Bob Roppel stated. “We are pleased that our financial commitment to this program will keep our friends and neighbors safe and help reduce and prevent falls.’’ According to RiverView Foundation Director Kent Bruun, about 100 people have already been touched by the program to this point. “Bob and Carla have made a commitment to this meaningful program,’’ Bruun stated. “Their continued generosity and concern have made A Matter of Balance a useful tool for the health and safety of the people of this and surrounding communities.’’ The class size is limited, so early registration is stressed.
