  • My son has speech delay and is autistic. These scenes will help him to communicate and answer simple questions and also practice vocabulary. He needs visual support to learn so all the pictures and scenes are just perfect for him. Thank you so much.

  • One of the questions is 'who is sat round the table?' - This is not correct English! It should be 'who is sitting round the table?'

  • I will be using with my daughter who has speech language delays. We will be practising so that I can model how to answer questions and teaching her to present the cards in response, then next stage will be focusing on getting her to answer orally. Once she has mastered answering questions, we will focus on her asking questions step by step.
