Talkies®

For Oral Language Comprehension and Expression

By Nanci Bell and Christy Bonetti

The Talkies® program is the primer to the Visualizing and Verbalizing® program for students who need simpler, smaller steps of instruction to establish the imagery-language connection.

The goal of Talkies® instruction is to develop mental imagery as a base for language comprehension and expression. Talkies® instruction may benefit students with prior third-party diagnoses of expressive language delays or autism spectrum disorders.

Talkies® instruction helps students:

  • Bring nonverbal imagery to consciousness
  • Establish the imagery-language connection
  • Increase oral vocabulary
  • Improve language comprehension and expression
