Language for Living: Language Activities for Young People with Learning Disabilities
Catherine Delamain & Jill Spring
This unique collection of 180 enjoyable group activities aims to foster both the skills underlying communication, such as body language and awareness of others, and aspects of spoken language itself. The activities are aimed at 16 to 18 year olds.
The book addresses the needs of students with very varied skill levels, and includes some activities which can be used with non-verbal students.
Language for Living has the following advantages:
No formal assessment necessary
Equipment not required or kept to a minimum
Activities can be freely adapted to suit students’ lifestyles and experience
Activities simple to organise, and easy to fit in to the daily programme of college, day or residential settings.
