By: Franke, Lauren
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Shawnee Mission, Kan. : AAPC Pub., c2011Description: xx, 162 p. : ill. ; 28 cm. + CD-ROM (4 3/4 in.)ISBN: 9781934575697; 1934575690Subject(s): Childhood | Communication | Co-occurring conditions and other disabilities | Conversation skills | Concept development | Early diagnosis and intervention | Learning disabilities | Literacy | Resources for educators | Resources for parents | Resources for practitioners and service providers | Understanding autism interventions | WorkbooksSummary: "Research shows that if those on the spectrum know how to converse with others, they are more likely to be employed, live independently, and have friends. As such, children with complex learning problems and autism spectrum disorder need to learn important language and conversational skills. These children are often in situations that may not be meaningful to them and hence are too complex for learning to occur. Due to the importance of understanding and telling stories for all children, Nurturing Narratives: Story-Based Language Intervention for Children With Complicated Language Problems, Including Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities was developed as a story-based language intervention for children. The model emphasizes comprehension, tailors language to the child's developmental level and stresses social engagement. The acquisition of language and literacy skills is embedded in a variety of story-related activities. Do you know somebody who has autism spectrum disorder struggles with conversation? This evidence-based practice can help."
