This is a very comprehensive presentation on the types of complex sentences children use even at very early ages (3-5 yrs.).
What I like:
1. description of types of sentences (takes me back to Grammar 101)
2. Language acquisition of PK students with detailed descriptions of the types of complex sentences a child uses at ages 3, 4, 5 all in one presentation. No need to go back to your grad school language acquisition book as a reference.
3. extensive review of infinitives
this presentation can be used for additional information to support your assessments as well as a great guideline when creating a treatment plan.
I will definitely be using it in the future!

This is a wonderful resource. The information is presented in a clear, well-organized manner, with many examples to reference. Sentence types and functions are reviewed, and there is also a discussion of the acquisition and order of complex sentences. This can be used as a guide when interpreting language samples, as well as when planning treatment. Thank you for your time and effort in creating this presentation!
