Making choices can be a highly effective tool in language therapy and also improving a child’s ability to function in a classroom more effectively.
Key tips to remember:
- Make them realistic and something you can follow through.
- Choose when to make to use. Is this a time of high stress? Then you may want to limit choices.
- Use visuals to help, including showing the child the items.
- Start small. You can then you can add more. Too many can be overwhelming.
