Functional Routines for Adolescents and Adults - 4 Book Set

Ages 12-22 

Use narrative-based language intervention to help clients increase their interactions with friends, family, and co-workers.  These illustrated lessons are for teens and adults with developmental disabilities, autism, and/or English Language Learners.

The language lessons teach clients to generate narratives while focusing on listening, expression, vocabulary, grammar, and conversation skills.  The materials use a strategy similar to the Teaching Tales model used with clients with autism (Blank, McKirdy, & Payne, 1997).  This approach lets you target a variety of speech and language skills based on client need.

Each book has 25 age-appropriate lessons.  Each lesson consists of a four-part picture sequence (i.e., a routine) and a corresponding page of language stimuli.  Three levels of language stimuli allow you to easily adapt the lesson to your client's needs:  

  • Beginner—two or three simple sentences per routine
  • Intermediate—three or four sentences per routine, more complex grammar, and sequence words like first and next
  • Advanced—four or five sentences per routine, more complex grammar, sequence words, and mental states such as thoughts, feelings, desires, and perceptions

Every lesson progresses in this sequence:

  • activate prior knowledge
  • listen to the story (routine)
  • story (routine) comprehension questions
  • retell the story (routine) with and without pictures
  • extension task

Each book targets a specific area of daily living.  The books may be purchased as a 4-book set or individually.  The 4-book set consists of:
