Don't Talk About Colors!

St. Patrick's Day for my little listeners today included rainbows.

Did you know that in Auditory-Verbal Therapy we rarely talk about the colors?

Once a child uses the COLOR to describe an object, it becomes the easy, go to adjective.
 That’s a red apple, a yellow sun, a green frog… Rather, when playing with the frog, we model, expand and talk by describing how the frog hops, has big eyes, can swim in the water etc. 
Have you ever meet a child with hearing loss that needs to be TAUGHT colors?
