Description:

Teach the Language Skills Needed for Face-to-Face Conversation!

Color My Conversation is an engaging, multi-sensory teaching program to help guide children through the conversation flow including the greeting, bringing up and changing topics, and how to close the conversation. Children will learn to navigate through a conversation starting at a basic greeting, and working toward the most complex conversation that the child is capable of having.  

CMC incorporates visual, auditory, tactile, and moto-kinesthetic strategies to teach social language and conversational concepts. Appropriate populations include: high-functioning autism, Asperger syndrome, LLD, language delayed, ADHD, fluency, articulation, children with mild intellectual disabilities, as well as children within the general population.

CMC utilizes highly engaging interactive activities including movement, song, rhyme, color coding, signing/gestures, beadwork, artwork, pictures/photographs, line drawings, worksheets, role plays, interactive game activities and field assignments to aid children in starting and maintaining a conversation. Instruction incorporates errorless learning to keep stress low and outcomes positive. Includes an easy to use manual with simple instructions to explain a holistic approach for fostering the development of social awareness, self-regulation, executive function, and meta cognitive and meta-linguistic skills. Target ages K-7th grade.

The Board Game is an advanced activity designed to add structure to the student's conversations. This activity further develops their techniques for more confident social skills.

Wall Chart is created to track and remind students of their progress. It also serves as a daily reminder of the proper conversation techniques, including comments, questions, and changing topics.

Author:

Rosslyn Delmonico, MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP, has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 33 years both within the private and public school systems, and has had her own private practice since 1991. Through her years of experience, she has worked almost exclusively with primary-school-age children, with her main focus of interest being on those with language impairments. 

Rosslyn saw a need for a connected and comprehensive social language program, which would take language-impaired children from a basic greeting to the most complex conversation that they were capable of having.  In 2006, she started developing a speech-language therapy tool for children within her caseload called Color My Conversation.  Since that time, it has continued to emerge as a social language based program applicable for both special needs and general education children.

Rosslyn discovered that her best teaching practices developed over her years of experience included movement, color, song, and hands on learning.  If the children were having fun, they were engaged. When they were engaged, they were learning! Her multisensory approach to teaching has proven to be highly effective with her students. Rosslyn's personal philosophy is that all children are special, can learn, and have something to give the world through their unique personalities.   


Customer Reviews:

"Anyone interested in improving social and life skills for K-7 students should give this curriculum a serious look. Two thumbs up!"
- Teacher


"I have a child with Asperger's Syndrome and even though he is a genius, he had no idea how to "act appropriately" with his peers. He did not possess the tools to properly initiate conversation with people. He was unable to express himself through words or facial recognition. In a nutshell, he was a grumpy looking, unapproachable boy who estranged himself from people through hyper-focusing on books and self-interest. We were referred to Rosslyn Delmonico through a friend because I was having anxiety about my son having difficulty transitioning into the next level of school and social obligation (high school). Rosslyn worked hard with my son that summer. Through the Color My Conversation program, he was given the tools to initiate basic conversations, introduce preferred topics and use proper eye contact and body language. The pivotal point was when he was able to show emotion through facial expressions, which he had very much struggled with. With all of this, he was able to transition into high school in a socially acceptable manner, which enabled him to make friends, and excel profusely. I know for a fact that my son would not be the same person socially, emotionally and in general if it were not for Rosslyn Delmonico and her extraordinary Color My Conversation. My son is proud to be graduating this year, with full acedemic credits, and is looking forward to continuing his education within the culinary arts."
