This extensive kit provides the teaching materials, including toys, you need to implement Talkies® instruction in one-to-one, small-group, or classroom settings.
The Talkies Kit provides theory, tools, and specific steps to implement Nanci Bell and Christy Bonetti's Talkies program. Talkies is the primer to the acclaimed Visualizing and Verbalizing® program for students who need simpler, smaller steps of instruction to establish the connection between language and mental imagery.
The Talkies program aligns with a theory of cognition, Dual Coding Theory, and through sequential steps brings the nonverbal code of imagery to consciousness. The goal is to engage the individual to consciously create and access mental representations and stimulate his or her awareness of the imagery-language connection. Talkies is not intended to diagnose or be an exclusive treatment for speech-language pathology and audiology disorders.
Talkies instruction may benefit students with prior third-party diagnoses of expressive language delays or autism spectrum disorders.
