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.
  • Photocopiable resource section
  • CD Rom for optional record- keeping and printable resources
