Stories for Everyday Social Skills (Set I & II)
Children with communication disorders often have difficulty in managing routine everyday social skills such as greeting people appropriately or asking for a toy politely. These difficulties interfere in their social interactions especially with peers. The stories for everyday social skills (set I and II) enable the child to understand social expectations and norms by laying emphasis on social cues and expected behavior.

The proto vocabulary kit assists in recording a child's utterances and is used to shape the child's utterances by assigning meaning.
The kit consists of a proto vocabulary folder for nouns and one for verbs. Each of the folders exists in a skeletal format wherein photos of ‘proto-words’ can be placed. This kit will assist and guide the parent / therapist of the child with a communication disorder, in providing the much needed support and reinforcement for the child to express himself / herself more adequately.
The supplementary manual, not only delineates how the pictures / photos must be assigned but gives further guidance also. The kit also gives samples of ‘proto words’ to assist the family / therapist to begin the process of using it.
The Communication ring is a simple key chain that has provisions for pictures or words to be added onto it.

It can be clipped on as convenient and also be used by families to assist in preparation of a child (for future activities).
