Educator and Speech Language Pathologist Lisa Flowers introduces her board games, language worksheets, and social skills worksheets and activities for individuals with Autism and Social Pragmatic Communication Disorders

Lisa G. Flowers has been a licensed and certified speech language pathologist for over thirty years, currently working with high school students. Throughout her career, she has developed and constructed original educational and speech language therapy materials. She discovered a need for more engaging and effective materials for her students than what was and is currently available in stores, catalogs, or on websites. Her colleagues, including teachers, social workers, psychologists, and fellow speech language pathologists, use the worksheets, activities, handouts, and board games she developed, and report great success with their students, whether working on comprehension, grammar, writing skills, life skills, or social skills.

Lisa has conducted presentations on her educational and speech language therapy materials to other schools from grades three and up, and has consistently been met with enthusiastic reviews. You will find our products for individuals with Autism and Social Pragmatic Communication Disorders user-friendly, comprehensive, effective, and engaging. We are excited by the prospect of these materials helping other professionals to successfully improve their students’ literacy, language, and communication skills! At Communication Acceleration we welcome all feedback on our materials. Hearing about your experiences and your students’ needs would allow for the creation of new and improved materials.
