Two books that provide basic conversation skills to students with developmental disabilities and show them how to initiate social interactions.
Conversation Skills: On The Job & In The Community
Conversation Skills, by speech and language therapist Dr. Marilyn Banks, covers basic and essential communication skills and helps young people enjoy successful job experiences and more fulfilling and independent social lives.
With 50-plus self-managed lessons, Conversation Skills is self-paced and takes only 12 weeks of bi-weekly, 10 minute training sessions during which students acquire a ready social repertoire. All materials in the book are reproducible.
Covered spiralbound book, 106 pages, 2005. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF containing all the reproducibles in the book.
Conversation Skills II: Extending Conversations
Conversation Skills II teaches students how to remember names, develop friendships at work and in the community, and extend conversations beyond a one answer response. A new feature of this second book, also by speech and language therapist Dr. Marilyn Banks, is the ability to graph the progress of students in a form understandable to parents and teachers. The graphing of work related conversation will give you invaluable documentation of student IEP progress.
Covered spiralbound book, 125 pages, 2008. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF containing all the reproducibles in the book.
