**This is the digital version of the printed workbook for use in teletherapy and other situations where a PDF is needed to show on a screen or device. The digital file you are purchasing is not printable and is licensed to a single user. You can use PDF annotation tools to markup the pages digitally, just have the child point/touch each dot, or use a screen protector with dry erase markers (please do at your own risk, testing to make sure the marker wipes off easily).
Dot Idioms was developed for speech-language pathologists working with students who have trouble understanding idiomatic expressions. The lessons are especially effective for students with high-functioning autism, learning disabilities, and limited English proficiency.The tasks require no writing and emphasize determining meaning via context. Appropriate photographs are used to illustrate meaning (no silly literal art is used that can potentially confuse your students). Your students will:
- Listen to and/or read a short paragraph containing a specific idiom in a relatable context.
- Answer questions using the information from the paragraph in order to accurately define,
explain, and relate the idiom to current situations.
- Match idioms to their definitions.
We know how essential understanding figurative language can be. Let’s teach our students in a motivating and interactive way so that they will succeed.
