Welcome to Module Nine (Intro)

You’ve made it all the way to module nine! Now, we start working on verbal speech at last. The strategies we will use to do this are very similar to that of sign language. They are: ‘no-pressure play,’ ‘simplify and slow,’ ‘pause and prompt,’ and the ‘three times rule.’ Research shows that it is necessary to strengthen the receptive skills first, so the fact that you’ve been working through this course slowly and taking things step by step is fantastic! It will help you now that we are working on the part of the brain involved in expressing language.

Before you move on…

Make sure that your child has mastered the basics of signing independently before you start this.
