Scripted stimuli combines with spontaneous interaction in an easy-to-use guessing game. Students master the tricky rules of question-asking in a fun format.

Busy clinicians rely on the Stimulus Pictures for Assessment, Remediation, and Carryover (SPARC) series for:

• loads of organized pictures
• plenty of practice opportunities
• convenience and portability
• no student reading requirements

•use for a variety of therapy goals

Ten units teach students to use singular and plural pronouns and verb forms in their questions. Each of the units focuses on these skill areas:

• wh- interrogatives: what, who, where, when, how, why, which
• interrogative reversals: is/are, was/were, has/have/had, does/do/did, could/should/would, will
• subject-verb agreement in questions
• pronoun usage in questions

The lessons are interactive. A student chooses a picture on a page without revealing his picture choice. The student then asks the Lead Question(s). Scripted stimuli prompt other students in the group to formulate Guess Questions until the picture choice is apparent. The Lead Questions and the Guess Questions give them practice in each of the four question skill areas listed above.

Alternative Activities in each lesson supply an abundance of stimuli for goals in receptive and expressive language, vocabulary, reasoning, making predictions, and auditory recall.
