Summary

New ways to teach core vocabulary and have fun. Practical tips to help therapists with fresh ideas and show how it can be an exciting way for children and adults to learn, and therapists to enjoy it too.

Method/Activities/Techniques

Teaching core words using everyday situations such as making a sandwich or smoothie, or giving instructions on a talker in the bowling alley.

Results/Findings

Learning can be great fun for all involved. Sometimes the mistakes that we set up create the best opportunities for talking!

Conclusions

Listen to ideas from the children/adults about what they want and set up novel ways to help them learn. Always have a video camera running to record events.
