I have often used song-writing or asking questions about song lyrics to help children with Autism to be more creative in answering questions as well as be consistent in a 2-3 part communication exchange. I love this idea being tried at the University of Colorado where kids with Aspherger's Syndrome get a chance to be a radio interviewer. Not only is this an age appropriate and fun thing for a kid to do, but it is the perfect situation to teach about asking open-ended questions and then following up with another question on the same topic. You can find the full story here.
