What is Colourful Semantics?

Colourful Semantics is the ‘meaning of the words’ and this is made colourful by breaking down and colour coding different parts of a sentence. Colourful Semantics is a speech and language therapy intervention that indirectly works on developing a child’s grammar through the use of:

  • Spoken sentences
  • Answering W/H questions
  • Use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives
  • Story telling skills
  • Written sentences and language comprehension

You will be able to work through the Colourful Semantics programme to encourage the child to create sentences. This is initially taught by focusing on sorting out colours, which will then progress to an understanding that there are different parts that make up a sentence.

The overall aim is for the child to eventually produce grammatical and informational sentences.

To assist you with implementation in the classroom, downloadable resources are available on our website to download for free or you can follow our Facebook resources page to see the latest topic based classroom resources.
