Conversation Skills on the Job and in the Community: A Curriculum for Adolescents and Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Front Cover
IEP Resources, 2005 - Business & Economics - 106 pages
Nondisabled workers usually lose their jobs because of character issues, but workers with developmental disabilities often lose them because of poor conversation skills and the subsequent isolation from coworkers that results. Conversation Skills, authored by speech and language therapist Marilyn Banks, covers the gamut of basic and essential communication skills and helps young people enjoy successful job experiences and fulfilling, independent lives. With 50-plus self-managed lessons, Conversation Skills is self-paced and takes only 12 weeks of bi-weekly, 10 minute training sessions during which students acquire a ready social repertoire. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF that contains all the reproducibles in the book.
