Witt, Beth
The program presented in this manual provides a structure and activities for systematic development of effective listening comprehension in typical and atypical children. The complete ENABLE kit comes with pictures, cut-outs, and puppets to illustrate the directives, questions, and narrative activities. The manual includes an organizational and informational overview, assessment information, and two levels of unit-organized activities and narratives for the development of listening comprehension. ENABLE I is appropriate for children with chronological, language, and/or cognitive ages of 1-3 years, while ENABLE II serves children aged 3-6. ENABLE I presents activities for development of basic directive responses and typical question-responses expected of children from 1-3 years. ENABLE II includes compound and complex directives, and narratives of increasing length and complexity followed by reasoning and inferential questions. Examples of unit topics include: self, family, animals, home, furniture, utensils, simple tools and machines, clothing, health and safety, transportation, shopping, community helpers, foods, playtime, weather, holidays, music, and nature. Visual materials to aid the use of each unit include a list of suggested manipulatives, flannel board illustrations of objects and places, and pictures of people and animals to be made into puppets.
