Expressive Language: What Would You Text?

One of my high school aged clients just got his first cell phone.  I would love to help him learn how to communicate basic messages (comments and questions) using text messages.   I made this worksheet to role play a few situations when he might want or need to send a text message to a familiar adult or to a peer.  I love working in a private clinic because I have the freedom to work on functional communication goals like this!


  1. Great idea! I love it when people think outside of the box. Functional and engaging to young people. You can even practice using phones. I've read where you can do the same with Twitter, but in a classroom--different idea, but similar. I'm an SLP with a blog too. Check it out

  2. This great! Very motivating for those older kids

  3. AWESOME CONCEPT! Very creative! LIKE!

  4. This is very cool.
    I've used a similiar idea for beginning writing using direct speech. The student and I write as if we are "instant messaging" each other on Facebook or Messenger etc.
    Its great fun.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
