Conversation Skills Program
This program will provide members training in mock conversations and digital correspondence (emails) for handling different real-world scenarios. Our endeavor is to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for our students to move out of their comfort zone and engage in day-to-day conversations. One unique factor about this program is that it enables students to use text to speech technology. Familiarity with this technology can open up so many opportunities that involve speech for our students.
