Conversation Club

Welcome to Conversation Club! 

CC AwardThis curriculum offers an innovative, data-based method of teaching both the "how and "why " of conversation to students with high-functioning autism and other social cognition challenges. We invite students to become club members, teach them the constellation of skills required for successful conversation, and include a cast of kid-friendly characters designed to facilitate thinking about the social significance underlying each skill.  For each of the eight units, we include an engaging story book that introduces students to the target skill being taught.

John Elder Robinson, Author of "Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's"

"How wonderful to have an assessment, curriculum, and progress monitoring guide in one resource that therapists and teachers can use to support the development of meaningful conversation skills. Using a  cognitive behavioral model, the Conversation Club helps children understand both "what to do" and "why." This is on my shortlist of recommended resources."
