A speech-language pathologist shows parents and caregivers they dont have to be experts to help kids communicate better! Use this uniquely designed book to improve the communication skills of young children -- aged 3 to 7 years -- who have delayed or ineffective speech due to autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, cleft lip / palate, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, hearing loss, or another condition. This book features a lively, full-colour illustrated childrens story that follows a child and his family as they challenge, prompt, and support his communication efforts. Adults can read the story on their own or with their child to empathise with his struggles to talk while learning practical ideas that help. The accompanying informational sections are full of accessible speech-language therapy strategies and instructions to improve communication and ease frustration -- sign language, sentence simplification, music and reading, and creating natural need (eg: moving a desired item out of reach) to compel children to ask for help. Readers will be empowered when they see how easy it is to apply these practices throughout everyday life! A childs community, whether daycare providers, teachers, family members, or peers, can learn from this book. Speech-language pathologists will want this book to train parents on how they can support their childs therapy at home.
