Intended for staff working with trainable mentally retarded students, the manual presents communication goals and activities. The first of the manual's three components provides outlines of 20 communication goals, each of which contains an explanation of the goal, lists of skills or associated content material, and specific activities for implementing the goal in classroom domains. Among goals addressed are improving discrimination ability, auditory memory skills, and ability to use nonverbal language appropriately in conversation. The second component contains lists of words organized according to target speech sounds, instructions and activities for classroom articulation practice, and sample student articulation profile sheets. The third section consists of illustrations of six common participatory events depicting a sequential progression, associated vocabulary items and conversation starter pictures. Suggestions for picture use are included. (CL)
