Association Method for Language Aquisition for Special Needs Students: Personal Description Stories

We have started Alex on personal description stories, which is a continuation in working with question language. The goal for these stories is to use the pronouns he and she and the possessive adjectives my, his and her. He has to change the language in order to use the proper words to refer to himself and others. Another goal is to increase his awareness of his own and other's personal appearance. The method is supposed to be used in a classroom and since I don't have access to 30 people or so to talk about, I chose to use the Guess Who? game I have. He has to answer questions such as "What color eyes does he have?" or "What is she wearing?" We work on a half dozen people each day, several which are review from the day before. He also has to answer similar questions about himself.
