Talking Nouns and Verbs are research-based software programs that give students with language impairments the opportunity to communicate. Students select a word, phrase, or picture to make the computer speak.
These programs offer a variety of activities that reinforce vocabulary comprehension, teach the formation of grammatically correct sentences, improve visual discrimination, and develop conversational turn-taking. They also offer an economical way to teach the skills needed to use a dedicated augmentative communication device. Grades pre-K and up.
