There are no illustrations used in The Substance of Language because the learner should be trained to observe other children, think critically about their actions and behavior so that the learner may imitate those actions, participate in the actions and recreate the actions and concepts in the real world with the actual objects depicted.Blank slate sentence building work pages: This allows the teacher the ability to build on learned language concepts. The color photography depicts children with food, drink, a common object or a common animal thus enabling the introduction of nouns, pronouns and pronoun referents. The use of unlabeled images creates the opportunity for more language initiation than labeled imagery, which would simply offer the learner a chance to read one sentence created instead of creating several.Designed to be paired with positive reinforcement to encourage emerging language skills in a prompt free environmentThis product uses only color photographic images to teach language concepts; no drawings or illustrations (with the exception of shapes to teach comparisons). This application is bug free.We recommend using this application with screens larger than a mobile phone, although it will work perfectly on any iOS mobile device.
