Ashley, Good question. Yes, I think that with the combination of our focus on attending to listeners and the social group work she is getting at school and in her social group therapy has helped her with appropriate eye contact. In addition, even though we haven't targeted this ourselves, we notice that she is staying on topic for more turns. I think that some of this may be due to our use of short turns in all activities to keep Claudia's verbal turns relatively short. She will stay on a topic for many more than the 1-3 turns she typically took at the beginning of therapy. Regards, Lynne
