This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty using conversation starters.

We encourage you to use this list of conversation starters when practicing at home.

Home practice will make progress toward meeting individual language goals for using conversation starters much faster.

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are only able to see students/clients 30-60 mins (or less) per week. This is not enough time or practice for someone to strengthen their understanding of this important language concept.

Every day that your loved one goes without practice it becomes more difficult to help them.
