---------------------------

Teaching Speaking to Children with ASD and related conditions is a programme designed to teach effective language and communication to children with a neurodevelopmental conditions that affect language.

Upon successful completion of the programme, children are able to understand and talk about: past, present and future events in their home life eating, playing, bathing, dressing and in the outside world: a visit to a shop, a trip to the zoo, activities at school.

Mastery of these skills enables children to become more active participants in the world around them.

Who is the programme for:

for children who meet the following criteria:

  1. In language - can say at least 2 words in sentence, either spontaneously or through imitation - '' bye bye'', ''go home''. This is an indicator that the child has the perceptual and motor base required for spoken language.
  2. In behaviour - they are willing to respond positively to adult guidance and cooperate with an adult.

How is the programme organised:

The Teaching how to speak programme is organised into short 20-30 minute sessions daily, 4-5 times a week. Skills taught in the lessons are also practiced outside the session in real-world scenarios. Depending on the child's skill and rate of progress, the full programme takes from 6 to 18 months to complete.

Two Components of the Programme:

PART 1: PRE-LANGUAGE SKILLS as a cognitive foundation on which language rests. In typical development, children move from single words to 2-and 2- word sentences within a relatively short period of time, and soon the full sentences emerge, so that by the age of 2 or 3, children can hold a conversation. This transition is smooth and can be easily overlooked. The changes are possible because a broad range of underlying pre-language skills are already in place.

In case of ASD and related conditions, we teach those skills to overcome this problem.

Levels of Pre-Language Skills: 240 session sheets

1- Matching pictures - 6 levels, 12 sessions per each level, in total: 72 sessions

2- Sequencing body movements - 4 levels, 12 sessions per each level, in total: 48 sessions

3- Sequencing visual patterns - 6 levels, 12 sessions per each level, in total: 72 sessions

4- Building receptive language - 4 levels, 12 sessions per each level in total : 48 sessions

Pre-Language Skills:

  1. attention - maintaining, selective and sustained attention
  2. sequencing - processing and retaining information that comes in over the course of time
  3. memory - holding in mind a set of information, such as pictures, words and sentences

The programme includes 4 types of language activities that seem simple, but they have enormous power. When combined and centred on a specific topic, they begin to approximate the flow of natural conversation. The introduction of a new material is done in a slow, carefully paced manner that gives a child the sense that verbal communication is within a child's power.

Following commands

Verbal imitation

Answering questions

Sentence completion

How to get started:

You need all the materials to carry out the programme effectively:

the materials to be used which I am going to send to each course participant via email to print and laminate

the language and actions required of the adult and the child

ways to handle difficult situations that may arise.

General guidelines:

Sessions:

One session of 20-30 minutes per day, 4-5 days peer week

Set up:

Workspace - a separate room with removed disruptors- only you and your child

Position - you sit next to your child by his/her right hand if a child is right-handed, and present the materials that the child sees clearly. The child sits in a comfortable chair with his/her feet touching the floor.

Adult's manner - a sense of calm control, ''business-like'', no sweets, no drinks, no food, no rewards. Correct responses are acknowledged solely with '' good'', ''very nice'' - not offered for every correct response (prompt dependency). Though not often given the attention it merits, the mastery of skills is empowering, and , on its own, it serves as the most effective reward a child can receive. As the child recognises the power she/he has to deal with the world, their confidence soars and they become more involved in teaching activities, without the need of external rewards.

Child's behaviour - the goal is to have the child sit quietly and attend to the adult throughout the session.

Hand support and hand-over-hand support

They are provided as needed. We will learn the difference between those two supports during our webinar.

Handling incorrect responses

We will learn the difference between those two supports during our webinar. A vital aspect that determines the course success.

Generalising skills in real-life situations.
