Ok the product was bought by a co-worker of mine and the opinions are all mine =) I work in an elementary school 2 days a week and a junior high 3 days a week. My favorite product that is at the elementary school is Matt and Molly in the Series Autism and PDD. There are many different book sets to choose from: Intermediate Social Skills Set, Picture Stories and Language Social Skills, Picture Stories and Language Activities, More Pictures and Stories and Language Activities, and 2 CD sets with Matt and Molly.
They incorporate yes/no questions, open ended questions, inferencing, social skills, vocabulary and language building tasks in a story format with simple pictures. I think that is what I like best- the simple line drawings with the basic information. Therefore, the children can use their minds more to generate ideas and thoughts.
There is a script along with the book that makes the story really easy to read. My fellow speech pathologists and I use Matt and Molly everyday. At my school, we have all of them (except the intermediate series which I believe is fairly new). That is going to be on my wish list for my junior high! The 25% off sale at Linguisystems is going on right now until November 2nd for the Members Only sale.
Here is the link to one of the Matt and Molly Series-- you should definitely check it out. I even truly think that some of my kids are low enough language wise that I believe I could incorporate all of the products into my junior high lesson plans.
Matt and Molly This particular set is my favorite!
