Teaching WH-Questions

Maureen Wilson M.S., CCC-SLP

Teaching WH-Questions: Comprehension is a frequent area of need for school-aged children.  We hear it from teachers all too often. So what are we to do when you have been working on WHO questions for what seems like forever and your student still gives you every answer except the one for WHO.  Addressing WH questions in a meaningful way for our students means we need to start at the linguistic base of the skill, which usually gets overlooked.  Let’s take a deep dive into WH Questions and learn how to grow this skill in the most effective manner.
