Rosslyn Delmonico, MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP, has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 35 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 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, one 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 to 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

Color My Conversation (CMC) - 2nd Edition

"Color My Conversation is awesome!" Kent M., SLP (April 2019)

"I loved having this at my previous school and miss it daily!" Alicia Rossi, SLP (April 2019)

"I absolutely love this program! It has been so helpful for the kiddos that need to work on conversation skills." Read full review – Shannon from Speechy Musings

"We have been using Color My Conversation at work. It has been working nicely for engaging in conversation with kids with ASD. We use it for K-8th. We have verbal, minimally verbally and a child using AAC doing it. We have been using it in classrooms, a small social group and in therapy sessions. Also just did a parent training on it. Really have seen progress in many of the students."  Debra W., SLP (Dec. 2018)

"I use Color My Conversation with my students who range in age from kindergarten to grade 4 and I love it."  Deborah B.M., SLP (Dec. 2018)

"I just started using this program a few weeks ago. I have really enjoyed it. I've modified the lesson and pace to match my students' needs. I use it with my 5th/6th-grade students. Thinking of possibly using for a few of my high school kiddos." – Andrea J., SLP (Dec. 2018)

"Color My Conversation is a good resource for working on conversation skills with a group of 5th graders - including working on basic skills-initiating, turn-taking, terminating, etc.."  Cara S.J., SLP (Sept. 2018)

"I love CMC! It uses a kinesthetic approach that kids of all ages can benefit from." – Melissa T.B., SLP (Apr. 2018)

"I use CMC with my higher functioning autism students. They enjoy the lessons and they’re generalizing the skills." – Deborah B.M., SLP (Apr. 2018)

"I have CMC, and I like it. Great for upper elementary and middle school students who find conversation challenging. It's very well thought out in terms of sequence and skills taught."  Krista D., SLP (Feb. 2017)

"I run Social Skills camps and groups for children between the ages of 6-11 who have a range of diagnoses including Autism, ADD, fluency disorders, and language disorders. We use the Color My Conversation (CMC) curriculum as it provides the kids a practical multi-sensory method for learning where, when, and how to have successful conversations with peers and adults. I notice that the children are better able to carry on conversations about non-preferred topics, ask questions, and use comments to show their partners that they are listening and caring about what others are sharing. They love to walk the conversation path and it gets the kids moving and learning. I notice that their anxiety level when conversing with peers is lower after training. Giving out tokens for comments and questions during the game provides a system for measuring progress as well."  Speech-Language Pathologist(Jul. 2015)

"I attended a CMC Conference 2 years ago and use the program in some capacity daily in my public school practice. I have also led staff trainings on CMC so that Teachers and Instructional Assistants could bring these skills into the classroom. The multi-sensory approach has been a huge benefit to my students and each one can participate at some level. I have also received a parent report that her child had a "real" telephone conversation with her grandmother for the first time after repeated practice. With my current work dynamic, I actually used a push-in model with one of my classes and we practiced CMC every Friday morning and then the Teacher was able to reinforce the skill taught throughout her day. Color My Conversation has also been a wonderful tool in helping neurotypical students participate in a structured conversation with my students in a safe and guided way that generated practice, success, and for some, beginning of friendships. I appreciate CMC and will continue to use it."  Speech-Language Pathologist (Jul. 2015)

"I've already had success using Color My Conversation! It has helped patients have a conversation that previously did not seem to understand the flow of conversation. Great visuals and activities that motivated them to talk."  Speech-Language Pathologist (Jul. 2015)

"Color My Conversation brings us back to the roots of how to communicate effectively face to face. It has the potential to powerfully impact our next generation of children."  Speech-Language Pathologist (2014)

Articulation Theatre Books

"I love Articulation Theatre." Shannon K.S., SLP (Sept. 2019)

"I use the Articulation Theatre books all the time!!!" Lindsay J., SLP (Sept. 2019)

"I love the Articulation Theatre set." Tammy M., SLP (Sept. 2019)

"I just got Articulation Theatre. It's really great. The kids seemed to like it!!!" Randi W., SLP (Feb. 2019)

"I got Articulation Theatre this year. I like it for my older kids who are ready to generalize sounds into reading context. Then we can talk about the stories using the vocabulary with their target sounds." Elisa S., SLP (Feb. 2019)

"I love these! I use the?Artic?Theatre books to make inferences. I cover the passage and have them read the words and make a smart guess to figure out what they think the passage would be about. And use for artic- more like a warm-up. I think you need to have discussions after reading each passage and have students monitor their speech sounds while discussing. They can be modified for how you want to use them. But better for carry over." Debbie F., SLP (Feb. 2019)

"These books are amazing! So fun!" Jessica C., SLP (Mar. 2018)

"My students have really enjoyed the Articulation Theatre Books in therapy this year! They particularly love the I'm Sorry and Insults sections...we always end with compliments and fan mail! Thank you for bringing new life to my speech sessions -especially for my older students and those nearing dismissal who are at the sentence and reading levels!" Jenn B., SLP (Nov. 2017)

"My students LOVE Articulation Theatre Books!" K. Schafnitt, SLP (Dec. 2015)

"My students made measurable progress due to their increased motivation to practice scenes. Their frustration decreased and liveliness increased as they acted out these entertaining plays. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I found the books' organization, use of colors to target sounds, ease of use for group therapy and motivating humor to be extremely helpful." Colleen Cull, MS, CCC-SLP (Aug. 2015)

"My students became jovial and eager to engage in the lesson. This atmosphere was helpful in therapy to encourage them to self-monitor. They continue to maintain the progress made, which is a testament to the increased motivation they experienced when using this thoughtfully organized, fun and motivating program." Patricia Amodei, MS, CCC-SLP (Aug. 2015)
