Incorporating strategies that stimulate language into a student’s daily routine, both at school and at home, can significantly improve their ability to express themselves verbally and participate with their peers. These resources will provide you with easy-to-implement ideas for getting your student to use more complex sentences and build their vocabulary. Just asking questions like, “Tell me the best thing that happened today!” vs. “How was your day?” will often generate a better more expressive response than the proverbial “Fine.” Playing word games can be a fun way to pass the time on a long car or bus ride, and students will add new words to their repertoire.
