AC-CJ05 Conversation Skills: On the Job & in the Community
Nondisabled workers usually lose their jobs because of character issues, but workers with developmental disabilities often lose jobs and experience other social problems because of poor conversation skills and subsequent isolation. Conversation Skills, by speech and language therapist Dr. Marilyn Banks, covers basic and essential communication skills and helps young people enjoy successful job experiences and more fulfilling and independent social lives.

With 50-plus self-managed lessons, Conversation Skills is self-paced and takes only 12 weeks of bi-weekly, 10 minute training sessions during which students acquire a ready social repertoire. All materials in the book are reproducible.

Covered spiral bound book, 106 pp, 2005. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF containing all the reproducibles in the book.

Conversation Skills II: Extending Conversations
The logical next step, Conversation Skills II teaches students how to remember names, develop friendships at work and in the community, and extend conversations beyond a one answer response. A new feature of this second book also by speech and language therapist Dr. Marilyn Banks is the ability to graph the progress of students in a form understandable to parents and teachers. The graphing of work related conversation will give you invaluable documentation of student IEP progress.

Covered spiral bound book, 125 pp, 2008. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF containing all the reproducibles in the book.
