Debbaudt Legacy Productions Training Video Support

The DLP Digital Training Video allows an agency authorized instructor to present a fully produced, complete video to students for a broader contextual view  and the ability to easily place a selected clip to match a more narrow-focused learning objective at a particular place within a PowerPoint, Keynote or other multimedia presentation. Learners in the 21st century respond well to short duration, faster-paced audiovisual illustration and instruction. Short duration clips can be repeated, for example, to illustrate verbal and nonverbal communications dilemmas, difficulties and nuance autistic individuals may present during real life interactions and illustrate suggested communications adjustments for the students.
