Understanding ambiguous words, phrases, and sentences is an important part of reading well, communicating skillfully, and enjoying humor based on word play. With this seven-unit activity book -- filled with creative, ready-to-use activities based on jokes and puns -- students will learn how to decipher the language ambiguities they encounter inside and outside the classroom. This is ideal for students in upper elementary grades through high school and even beyond. Speech-language pathologists and education professionals can help to improve students¿ literacy and communication skills, including semantic, metalinguistic, and pragmatic skills. Teachers can work with students to correctly interpret multiple-meaning words and phrases, such as homographs and homophones, idioms and proverbs, and metaphors and similes. And it is designed for a wide range of students, especially those who have autism or a related disability, have a language or learning disability, or are learning English as a second language. There are dozens of activities and a printable board game to make learning fun, and the activities work with students in small group or in one-to-one settings. The activities promote development of the skills students need to decode language complexities and humor cues independently when they occur in everyday language. This book includes enlightening summaries of relevant research, background information on the language concepts, and specific techniques for presenting the activities and helping students generalize new skills in other settings. SLPs and educators will also get the practical content they need to implement the activities and assess student progress.
