Teaching Communication – Narratives
Narratives are the telling by learners of both factual and/or fictional stories. These are not scripted (as in a book) but are mostly spoken and
derived from memory and repetitive practice. They are usually quite short – a minute or two in the telling – and describe events or relate interests,
biographical information, jokes, stories etc.
Narratives are the way we all communicate about our lives – good, bad, funny, sad – to those who matter to us. They are the essential glue of social humanity.
Narratives are however, extremely challenging for all but the most able of SLD learners because they require skills of memory, organisation, structure, emphasis and communication which are acquired naturally by neuro-typical conventionally developing learners well before the age of 6. Because they are not specifically taught (rather like Play skills) there is no schema available. This training seeks to explain the basic problems and provide detailed solutions.
