This material is designed to help autistic children develop and improve their conversation skills, specifically focusing on the use of follow-up comments to provide new information. Follow-up comments are essential in maintaining interest and keeping conversations flowing. For autistic children, practicing this skill can enhance their ability to engage with others and have more meaningful conversations.
The activities included in this material involve role-playing conversations and analyzing them to identify areas of improvement. By participating in these activities, autistic children can practice listening, responding with relevant information, and being respectful when sharing their thoughts. This structured approach allows them to build their conversation skills in a supportive and enjoyable way.
