Curriculum Database Document: Using Simple Sentence Structure
Teaching procedures developed at NLG to allow students to learn to communicate in sentences the correct agent, action and object observed in the correct order. Recognizing that this response constitutes a new behavior chain for most students, the method teaches the mechanics of creating a sentence using visual prompts vs. having the student memorize specific sentences. This allows rapid generalization to novel sentences. This method works well for visual learners. The student should have already mastered identifying a variety of nouns and verbs before beginning this program. Includes 8 photos of learning materials.
