Everyday Speech skill: Conversation Topics
Lesson Plans to Teach Conversation Topics
As children begin establishing the building blocks for how to communicate with others, it’s important to equip them with conversational tools for what to communicate with others. Many kids will identify with the frozen feeling of being unsure what to say next, how to answer a question or how to continue a conversation. As a result, many educators are seeing the need to teach conversation skills to all students in a general education setting.
Over time, conversational cues and topics of conversation may become more natural for some students, but extra guidance and education can help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Disabilities and other social and emotional needs to find their footing faster.
Put These Skills to the Test With the Everyday Speech Curriculum
Everyday Speech offers multiple lessons with modeling videos, games and activities designed to help children become more confident, comfortable conversationalists. Children will learn how to stay on topic through making connected comments, picking a topic, shifting to a new topic, using a conversational filter and making small talk with others. They’ll have the chance to practice these newfound skills through various activities and worksheets and will be encouraged to continue practicing their conversational skills with their friends and families!
