Using Talk Topics

Talk Topics are great for starting and learning about conversations.

– Learning how to have conversations isn’t that simple for people who use speech devices. Talk Topics can help make that happen!
– Each column has one specific communication category.
– Start at the left and choose the phrases that are closest to what you want to say.
– Don’t forget to also use questions. (That’s a key part of conversation!)
– Use the last column to have a story you like to tell
– You’ll be surprised at how powerful pre-programmed speech can be  for quick exchanges. And… for learning how to have conversations.  
– Don’t forget to make your own  Talk Topics!  For example, for  a daily activity or special occasions like visiting relatives.
