Sam’s Success Story: Sam started commenting using sentence strips. When he got the hang of it, he started more spontaneous commenting. He started commenting on things / events that no one had taught him with. He started generating comments beyond ‘I see,” and other cues on sentence strips. Sam is the poster child for making the leap to spontaneous commenting.
