Here are a few conversation starter cards for parents and teachers to use to encourage special needs children to initiate conversations. This takes time, but with much practice soon students will be holding conversations. Using one question at a time is a great way to start. For example: You'll notice the "HI, How are you?" card. There will be two colors for each conversation. In this conversation you will see the colors: Yellow and Blue. The conversation starter will read the yellow card to a friend, parent or teacher. The person who responds will read the blue card. then the conversation starter will then finish the conversation by reading the next yellow card. Posting these cards near your child's favorite place to play helps them retain the information being learned. There are a total of 4 conversation starters in this post. Thank you and I hope this is helpful.
