Dear Joan, We will continue to increase the length and complexity of Claudia's utterances by gradually modifying the activities so that they are more spontaneous. Right now, for example, the clinician and Claudia take turns in telling stories using wordless books. That keeps Claudia's responses limited to a few sentences. The same goes for craft or snack-making tasks--the clinician structures them so that each of them has a relatively defined talking turn. When that structure is gradually removed, Claudia will have some longer talking turns, and the same cues will be used to help her produce clear speech. I hope this answers your question. Best wishes, Lynne
