Helping Children to Improve Their Communication Skills: Therapeutic Activities for Teachers, Parents and Therapists

 

Deborah M Plummer

 

For many children, the act of communication which most of us take for granted can be a struggle, and communicating with others can become something to fear rather than enjoy.

This creative book is full of fun and imaginative ideas to help children aged 4—11 with a speech or language delay or disorder to develop their communication skills. It is packed with activities and games specifically tailored to help develop skills such as articulation, vocabulary development, breath control, conversation skills and non-verbal communication. Tips for personalising and shaping the activities are also provided. A comprehensive theory section supports the ideas presented, and practical advice on working with groups and individuals and in different settings is also given.

 

This activity book will be an invaluable resource not only for speech and language therapists and students, but also for parents, teachers, carers and other support staff who are looking for creative ways to promote language development.
