Library Thursday: Woodbine House ebooks and other useful resources

Woodbine House books on Kindle
Woodbine House, publishers of any of our most respected books about people with Down syndrome has released 13 titles as Kindle editions, available through Amazon. More are sure to follow, so we'll be looking out for them. As you would expect, they are considerably cheaper than the print editions
If you don;t own a Kindle, you will also be able to read them on Kindle for PC, or the Kindle iPad app.

Down Sydrome News - Convention Issue
The latest issue of Down Syndrome News, the magazine published by the National Down Syndrome Congress (US) is now available online.  It focuses on the recent NDSC annual Convention in Washinton.

New and improved versions of See and Learn kits
Down Syndrome Education International is making improvements to its See and Learn Kits - see the DSE blog, Frank Talk for details.

Assistive Technology - a super listing
Lauren Enders is a speech  and language Pathologist with a particular interest in assistive technology.  She has used Pinterest to provide a super organised collection of links to assistive technology tools, resources, apps (LOTS of iPad stuff) - and because she has used Pinterest, it's all *very* graphic and easy to follow. It might take a few hours to look through it all, but looks very interesting!

Spectronics online subscription service
Spectronics has launched its online subscription service - details of what is available and costs are in this brochure. Pass the link on to your child's school in case they haven't seen it - they need to know.

Thanks for mentioning my Pinterest page!( I also manage a professional Facebook page. I post lots of information about assistive technology and supporting children with disabilities!
