The Talkies® program aligns with a theory of cognition, Dual Coding Theory, and through sequential steps brings the nonverbal code of imagery to consciousness.  The goal is to engage the individual to consciously create and access mental representations and stimulate his or her awareness of the imagery-language connection. Talkies® is not intended to diagnose or be an exclusive treatment for speech-language pathology and audiology disorders.

Talkies® is a primer to the Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program, and the goal of Talkies® instruction is to develop mental imagery as a base for language comprehension and expression. Talkies® is especially helpful for students who need simple, smaller steps of instruction to establish the imagery-language connection.  Talkies® instruction may benefit students with prior third-party diagnoses of expressive language delays or autism spectrum disorders.

Bring nonverbal imagery to consciousness
