Do I have hyperlexia? Is my child hyperlexic? Take the free online hyperlexia quiz today!

I've mentioned the difficulties that kids with hyperlexia have with "WH" questions numerous times. So we have to practice, practice, practice answering and asking "WH" questions in an attempt to build language and comprehension. 

I've already shared some all about me questions and prompts and they have worked great with our son. 

I have created a new set of questions and prompts all about everyday objects like cups, utensils, soap, shampoo, telephones, chairs, and more. 

There are 50 questions and prompts in all and they're all free to download.

Encourage conversation and build language with this free printable set of questions and prompts about everyday objects - great for kids with autism and hyperlexia from And Next Comes L

My son with hyperlexia can easily answer a prompt when phrased as a sentence that he has to complete, but if I phrase the same prompt as a "WH" question, he struggles. That's why it is so important for us to practice these types of questions over and over.

How to Use this Printable

Just like our other printable questions and prompts, there are a few different ways to use them. You can try these ideas:

  • Cut them all out and match the question with the appropriate answer.
  • Have your child ask the question and you respond.
  • You ask the question and the child responds.
  • Keep the question and answer prompt attached (i.e., don't cut the cards vertically) so that you can fold the answer behind the question. Then your child can read the question, try to answer it, and then double check by folding it open to see the answer prompt.
  • Read the prompts only and see what creative answers your child may come up with. For instance, the prompt, "I have a bath..." could be answered as "I have a bath every night before bed" or "I have a bath when I am dirty."
