So many of the kids I’ve worked with have difficulty with wh-questions in some form. This semester, at my grad clinic, I’m working with an AAC client on answering comprehension questions about books. It was difficult for her to understand the different wh-questions and how she should answer them. For example, when I say, “who”, you know to answer with a person. And when I say, “how”, you know you need to describe a process or tell me the steps.

I cut out the visuals from Speaking of Speech and glued each one on the back of a paint chip and made these!

After we read a question, we look at the first word and find the matching flashcard. Then we flip it over and talk about how to decode the question! It’s been working out really well and provides an easier way for her to feel more independent!
