Daily conversation unites individuals and groups. We establish social bonding and friendships through every day, seemingly trivial, exchanges. Many children with pragmatic challenges (impairments in social language) may have difficulty joining a conversation.

When we met with the coach, she pointed to a far away water tower that was a tiny speck in the distance. “At the end of the season, you will be running to the water tower and back,” she announced. I could barely see the water tower, and I did not ...
There are occasional jokes about the types of rooms that are available

designated work/meeting areas.
Clinical spaces may vary in size from an entirely empty classroom, a

Many of my students have really good narrative language goals (I love inheriting so many goals from other wonderful SLP's!) Narrative language is a key to ...
