About This Item
teach2talk’s™ WH Questions! series helps teach children to understand and appropriately answer basic question forms critical to a functioning communication system – when, where, which, how, what, who/whose, and why/wherefore questions.
Why?, Volume 2 of our WH Questions! series, models appropriate answers to a variety of basic “why” questions, ranging from more basic questions to more advanced questions requiring logical inferencing to answer, in a variety of every day settings which will be familiar for most children.
Why? was created by teach2talk™ co-founder Sarah Clifford Scheflen, M.S., CCC-SLP, a practicing speech language pathologist who has extensive experience working with children to teach them question forms, including through the use of video modeling, which research has shown to be an effective method for some children. Fun songs are also added to keep children engaged and help them further generalize any new found skills!
Why? may be appropriate both for younger children just being introduced to WH question forms, as well as older children who have language or developmental delays.
teach2talk™ Co-Founder Jenny McCarthy, Mom:
As a mom, it was incredibly frustrating when I asked Evan a question, and he either didn’t respond at all, or confused why with another wh- word, or he just repeated the question back to me. I can remember asking Sarah, his speech therapist, if he would ever ask or answer a why question. And sure enough, he is able to do both! Video modeling openend another door to help his language skills. These videos help teach children how to ask and answer questions.
teach2talk™ Co-Founder Sarah Clifford Scheflen, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist:
Children typically learn to comprehend and answer “why” questions when they are around three half years old. However, many children have difficulty understanding and answering “why” questions. teach2talk’s™ Why? video can help teach children how to appropriately answer “why” questions while at the same time exposing them to additional vocabulary through modeling a variety of real life situations.
