The "go-to" resource for teaching pragmatic social language skills!

The Color My Conversation program is an engaging, multi-sensory approach to teach children the language skills needed for face-to-face conversations. Utilizes 12 specific lessons to systematically guide children through the conversation flow starting at a basic greeting and then building toward the most complex conversation that the child is capable of having.

Includes comprehensive supporting tools for the SLP allowing seamless implementation of each lesson with success.
