Maddie has a hard time understanding sarcasm. Therefore she isn’t able to follow conversations and respond. She needs to learn how to tell when people are being sarcastic.
Use Understanding Sarcasm
Sarcasm can be so difficult to understand. I like to teach my students some ways to know when someone is being sarcastic. If the situation isn’t matching what they are saying, there is a good chance they are being sarcastic. This is a great time to work on tone of voice as well. Practice saying different statements in a sarcastic voice or in a sincere voice. Talk about the differences in how their voices sound.
