WHAT CLINICIANS SAY
“I've just had a chance to look at Anna's Conversation Paths Pack Expanded Version. She's added lots of great information that makes them even more useful and easy to use than the original Paths! In transitioning to teletherapy in the early days of the pandemic, I viewed Anna’s presentation on her then-new Conversation Paths techniques and visuals and instantly envisioned their application in therapy. Since then, they have proved to be invaluable- setting the “plan” for conversational activities, providing visual supports that aid in processing and engagement, and addressing organic strategies and building blocks that are supported by research around conversational interventions. I’ve found them very adaptable to many verbal activities within groups, and also invaluable in-person with the use of a TV monitor or classroom projector. Having previewed the expanded materials, I can say that there is now more to love about Conversation Paths!”

Customizable Conversion Paths & Practice Activities, built to help you support students working to expand and improve their conversational and social engagement abilities.
•Social interaction offers opportunities for lifelong learning and personal growth, as defined by each individual.
•Conversation is a complex, dynamic, and spontaneous aspect of social interaction, with organic connection and flow. In conversations, people transmit meaning in many different ways.
•A strength-based approach, as well as the integration of self-determined goals - with progress measured via individual change rather than conformity to neurotypical standards - must be part of our clinical process.
•CPPEV is not for everyone. Selecting appropriate materials for our students is our responsibility.
•Using CPPEV in a way that expresses prejudices based on disability (ableism) or judgmentally demands masking (explicitly or implicitly) is in opposition to its intent.
