Teaching kids to ask questions is one of the unavoidable challenges of speech/language pathologists, special needs teachers and classroom teachers. I’m sure that others have had experiences similar to this — a successful language lesson is completed and a student looks at you and asks, “When I can go?”
Asking questions, in our language, involves inverting word order in sentences, using specific question words and/or using a rising vocal inflection. Question-asking ability develops as language ability grows. As one becomes more proficient in language he or she is capable of formulating more complex questions. Elements of syntax and morphology such as the inversion rule and correct use of question words develop as part of a child’s language system during preschool years. This book will help your students develop questions making.
