Library Thursday: 6th February 2014

New on our shelves
A speech-language pathologist shows parents and caregivers that they don't need to be experts to help kids communicate better! Talking Is Hard for Me! follows a child and his family as they challenge, prompt, and support his/her communication efforts through:
  • natural need creation (change the environment to compel the child to ask for help)
  • sign language & AAC
  • communication turn-taking
  • choices
  • sentence simplification
  • music
  • reading
Use the kid-friendly illustrations and supportive story to empathize with children’s struggles to talk, and the accompanying strategies to improve communication and ease frustration. Share it with peers, daycare providers, and teachers. Makes a great tool to reinforce therapy sessions. (Publisher)
