The new, revised 2nd Edition of The Processing Program: Levels 2 and 3 helps improve language-processing skills using a set of picture-identification tasks. Teachers learn how to identify the modifications a student needs. The program includes:

  • Language Webs, organised by linguistic concepts
  • Altered Auditory Input (AAI) technique with picture plates and commands
  • 119 picture plates for Level 2 and 65 picture plates for Level 3

You'll learn how to identify the type of modifications needed for each child and then how to fade use of the AAI technique. The technique can be taught to the child's communication partners, especially the child's parents.

Level 2 targets 101 advanced concepts for children ages 6 to 9 years. Level 3 uses many of the same concepts as Level 2, as well as 17 additional concepts, in longer and more complex command combinations for children ages 9 to 12 years. Age, however, is not the sole determinant for level use. For example, older children with more severe language disorders who need remediation of primary level concepts will still benefit from Level 1 activities.

The Processing Program: Levels 2 and 3 is a great resource for children who have difficulty processing or learning language, including those with attention deficit disorders, auditory processing disorders, autism, and cochlear implants.

Note: To begin The Processing Program: Levels 2 and 3 it is not necessary to complete Level 1.
