Product Description
A BEST SELLER! For students who cannot easily learn to state their first and last name, age and birthday, explicit instruction through discrete trials over a long period of time is usually most effective in teaching this skill.

Being able to tell people about yourself is an early skill that is foundational for social interactions. Children also need to be able to tell an adult who they are in situations where they are not with people who can speak for them.

Children are not able to tell personal information for a number of reasons, many times due to expressive and or receptive communication deficits. Children with extremely low cognitive abilities may also take longer and require more intensive interventions in order to learn this skill. Children who are very easily distracted or quickly lose focus may not attend long enough in a communication exchange to share or ask for personal information.
