My students need Let's Talk Flashcards and Conversation Starters to teach them how to start conversations and keep them going!
Remember staying up late and talking the night away? Remember getting in trouble for talking in class? I want my children to have these experiences too!
I am a speech language pathologist in a high-poverty elementary school with a Special Needs focus.
The students on my caseload face a number of challenges including cognitive deficits, autism, and hearing impairments. These children have difficulty starting and maintaining conversations with their peers. They tend to have better conversations with their teachers and other adults in their lives because the adults can structure the conversation for them.
I want my students to be able to form close bonds with children their own age. I want them to be able to know what to say to get a conversation started and how to respond when peers talk with them. I don't want them to stick out in a crowd because they are talking at the wrong time or not responding when they need to. The materials I have requested teach ways to initiate conversations during activities of daily living and at school. The 'Let's Talk' series cards and flashcard for conversation, asks thought provoking questions and requires that the students justify their answers. I hope that these questions will give my students ideas for what they can talk about when they are with their friends on the playground, the bus, or at home.
Being able to participate in a conversation is an important skill to learn.
It lets people know if you are hurt, what happened earlier in the day, and what you want. Your donations can help improve these skills in students with communication impairments.
