Pragmatic Language

I have a never ending checklist at work.  I work all day to check tasks off the list and it somehow continues to grow.  And grow.  And grow. 

Evaluate Sam.
Write evaluation report.
Make-up time for Sue.
Complete monthly caseload info.
Lesson plan for Monday!
Create a Pragmatic Language Rating Scale

This last task has been on the to-do-list for weeks.    I thought I would share my final product.  I have a high number of children with autism on my caseload and  I do not  have time to meet with their teachers as often as I would like to.  I created a rating scale that allows the teachers to report areas that are difficult for the students in the area of pragmatics. I went ahead and included an informational sheet about Social Language Use and Tips (adapted from ASHA).

Create a Pragmatic language Rating Scale

I can finally check it off. Whew, that feels good! I hope by sharing my ideas I am making your to-do-list shorter!

Talk it up!
