Tools for Extending Conversations Activity

Tools for Extending Conversations Activity



Description:  We’re always so excited when we finally teach an older child to initiate a conversation!  But then we realize that they may be able to initiate that conversation with a peer but they can’t maintain it.  Here’s where this activity comes in.  We can give our clients a toolbox of different strategies that they can use to continue a conversation that is already in progress.  Those tools include:

  • Ask a question
  • Answer a question
  • Tell a fact
  • Give an opinion
  • Ask an opinion
  • Tell a story
  • Ask them for a story
  • Talk about something similar

You’ll need to make sure that your client practices how to use these strategies while staying on topic or making smooth topic transitions.  Practice these in role play scenarios first before moving them on to actual conversations with peers.  You can download our toolbox using the link below, or make your own!

Our Mission

We all got into this field because we wanted to help.  But high caseloads, tons of paperwork, and not enough planning time leads to burn-out and stress.

The SLP Solution’s mission is to support you with tools, resources, and expert advice so that you can be there for the children who depend on you!

*** The SLP Solution is for informational and educational purposes only and does not provide medical or psychological advice.  We provide general resources but cannot tell you exactly what should be done for a specific client.  Every client is different and your clinical judgement should be used when making decisions about specific individuals.
