What educators are saying

My favorite resource to use in pragmatic groups! My students have a great time acting out the different roles.
This is a great way to analyze "what went wrong" and how the conversation could improve, then role play the new and improved conversation. The students really enjoy using these conversations

Are you out of ideas for social language groups in speech therapy? Or do you need something to help students practice conversational skills (such as initiating and turn-taking) in a structured and functional way? These role-play activities help generalize pragmatic language skills while increasing students' awareness!

Use the simple visual to teach several of the components of successful conversations. Then allow students to practice identifying these elements through 50 relatable role-play scenarios. After students read a script, they can work together to discuss and determine if (and how) the conversation may be improved and re-read the conversation with the changes they've identified!

The role-play scripts can be used with individual students and small groups. The PDF can be printed and used for in-person therapy or used digitally for teletherapy or an iPad. These role-plays are also great to send for homework!

Several conversational skills are addressed in the role-plays:

➡️ Conversational turn-taking

➡️ Topics of conversation

➡️ Starting and ending conversations

➡️ Reading social cues and considering the feelings of others

This activity is ideal for social groups since you can incorporate practice for many additional pragmatic language skills, such as making inferences and predictions and identifying and using non-verbal communication, such as tone of voice and body language.

SLPs and teachers like you have said....

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amanda C. says, "Wow! This packet is so good! I love how I can use it in so many different ways. I have several students working on conversation skills. This helps them to identify the communication breakdown and how they could fix it, or make the conversation better!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Erika C. says, "My client loved this resource. Having pre-existing scripts was great because it takes the pressure of spontaneously roleplaying out of the equation. Led to some excellent insights and discussions while identifying conversation blunders and revising the script for the better."
