Bonnie Singer, Ph.D. & Anthony Bashir, Ph.D.

Students must solve problems to participate in school successfully. Research shows that self-talk supports the thinking, executive functions, self-regulation, and social interactions students need to solve problems.

Drs. Singer and Bashir summarize the research on how self-talk develops to support task performance. They also reveal its critical role in instruction and intervention for children who struggle in school.
