Product Description
Playdough Visuals are just that -- visual cues and prompts that help teach linguistic concepts and skills as children play with playdough. Concepts are all blue to represent what you can make and form with blue playdough.

Excellent for children: on the autism spectrum, with processing delays, language delays, dual language speakers, selective mutism, or even children without language delays! This is by far my favorite product (I use it myself!).

This provides another channel into learning language beyond the verbal prompt or self-talk.

Place one or a few concepts on table as you play, and cycle through the concepts and tasks week to week. Model by MAKING and SAYING (self-talk) to integrate concepts into play. Example: I am making a BIG meatball. But this meatball is NOT big. [teaches a size concept and negation-not). Show me the BIG meatball. Show me the meatball that is NOT big. Also: place LESS playdough toys on table so play is more focused and planned.

Some concepts have more than one icon to support generalization. Best if printed on card stock.
