However, verbs are difficult to convey graphically because they require movement (Schlosser et al., 2014) and they may require two or more arguments (Thompson et al., 2003). This presentation will discuss the effects of symbol format (videos/photographs) on identifying verbs, naming verbs, and generating sentences using the verbs.

The seminar will address both socio-political and scientific implications of neurodiversity.
