Talk With Me is a unique approach to assessing and teaching conversation skills in a group setting – effective for most students who have difficulty engaging in conversations, including students with HF-ASD. The Conversation Framework breaks down the elements of a conversation which must be mastered. The framework was developed and refined across many years based on a review of the relevant research along with close observation of what conversations really sound like.
