On the Job and In the Community

By Marilyn Banks

Adolescents and Adults

Nondisabled workers usually lose their jobs because of character issues, but workers with developmental disabilities often lose jobs and experience other social problems because of poor conversation skills and subsequent isolation. Conversation Skills, by speech and language therapist Dr. Marilyn Banks, covers basic and essential communication skills and helps young people enjoy successful job experiences and more fulfilling and independent social lives.

With 50-plus self-managed lessons, Conversation Skills is self-paced and takes only 12 weeks of bi-weekly, 10 minute training sessions during which students acquire a ready social repertoire. All materials in the book are reproducible.

Covered spiralbound book, 106 pgs, 2005. Includes a Win/Mac CD with a printable PDF containing all the reproducibles in the book.
