Their latest post, Accountable Talk® for Everyone, is a particulary good one. Buddy talk, Accountable Talk, small group discussions, partner work---these are all extremely challenging for language impaired children. The child may know answers, but to explain thought processes, or to think about ideas from others' perpectives and provide verbal supports for your own opinions is difficult.

These are leveled flip books--one for beginners, and one for more advanced learners.
