Teaching Conversation to Children with Autism

teachingconversationTeaching Conversation to Children with Autism by Lynn E. McClannahan and Patricia J. Krantz.

(XCM McCla 2005)

By reading this book you will understand how scripts and script fading can provide a predictable and meaningful structure for children and adults with autism to engage in conversation.  By using this strategy, children begin by playing recorded words or phrases to initiate conversation and often progress to speaking spontaneously with other children or adults. Pp. 155.
