  1. Your website is totally awesome. I’ve been printing all of your teaching ideas today. Thanks so much for helping kids on the spectrum and those that work closely with them.

  2. Love the conversation ideas posted by Jill here!

    Here are some resources I posted on my site a couple days ago: . It teaches some elements of conversation based on the parts of a train.

    Locomotive: Greeting
    Coal tender: How are you, etc
    Each subsequent train car: Conversation turns
    Car off-track: Departing from shared topic abruptly
    Switch track: Tactful change of topic
    Caboose: Ending conversation, farewells

    The link above gives a free download of a wall display featuring real train pictures.

  3. Nice resources for conversational skills-building. Could you please proofread and fix typos, please? My kiddos will be all over the “smack” (instead of “snack”), lol
