Section 17 Conversation and Sentences 


An important area of helping students improve on is a conversation and the structure of language. Speech and language pathologists spend hours on articulation and social skills; this is sometimes a lost finer point. We often take for granted our ability to phase information correctly on demand. This skill does not come as naturally to some as others. Working on this skill sets the stage for social skills, conversations, and articulation mistakes. If you like using an iPad as part of your practice, I recommend looking here for apps.
