  6. Nurturing Narratives
    Nurturing Narratives
    $34.95

    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.

    Children ASD 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 in conversation for all children, Nurturing Narratives 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 struggles with conversation skills? This evidence-based practice can help.
