To help teach the children the difference between tangential monologues and actual conversations, I made a simple visual. In my world, simple is good.
Judging videos and actually learning to self-monitor conversations are two completely different tasks, so I made a small poster with the visuals above for his classroom and for his parents. They will use this vocabulary with him at appropriate times to help him reflect on his own behaviors. I'll also use this in our social thinking group. You can grab the visuals here.
Here are the videos. My student didn't need to watch the entire length of any of them--just a minute or two---he was very attentive, and actually remarked on his own that 'Talking With' was the better way.
