Speech Therapy with Flash Cards

Video Summary

The following clip portrays a speech therapy session with Jazmere, a young boy who has benefited substantially from ABA. Jazmere's progress is evident not only in his correct labelling of many action cards, but also in his use of many nonverbal cues to better communicate and engage with his therapist during the session. These cues include his frequent glances toward the therapist's face, his attempts to share pleasure and mastery of the task with her, his spontaneous attempts to engage her apart from the lesson content and his consistent use of pointing. This coordination of verbal and nonverbal communication reflects a clear change in Jazmere's motivation as well as his ability to communicate with others.
