FREE Getting Started with Conversation Guide- Looks Like Language

Would you like a life without conversations? No way! We probably can't even count how many we have during a day. So, try to imagine how the life of a child on the autism spectrum is like without this skill.

No matter what we do to improve vocabulary, concepts, sentence structure, you name it, daily life functioning will be affected if we don't manage to get our students conversing socially. And it isn't always easy!

The traps I fell into when starting to work on this skill included:

* getting rote I like/What do you like interchanges only!
While this is a beginning, it is definitely not an end goal.

* prompting with 'say' and 'ask' with students getting confused about what I was expecting of them.

* prompting responses verbally, ending up with my students talking to me and not with each other!

* getting students to converse, but only on limited range of topics or when prompted.

I decided that there must be a way to build conversation skills visually and offset these issues. (You know that I am passionate about visuals and strategies!)

It took me lots of years of trial and error before I came up with the methods that worked for my students on the autism spectrum. I know that I've had the actual materials available in my TpT store for a while now, and I'm thrilled beyond measure that there are students out there making progress in conversation skills that I had a part in helping!

However, I realized this summer that I didn't really have anything in place to help you see my overall structure/model. So, I decided to make this brand new free guide call Getting Started with Conversation! 

Getting Started with Conversation will help you with assessing current status, planning therapy,  and measuring progress. More success with less stress!
