Something that is partcularly nice about it as well as the other books like it is that they don't talk in ages but in stages.

I wish I had time to read the whole thing at once, it's full of helpful info. I recommend it to anyone working with or parenting a child with down syndrome. Something that is partcularly nice about it as well as the other books like it is that they don't talk in ages but in stages. This way you can follow your child, and not some outward source that determines what they should be doing and when.

Bought for use in a parent-infant education program for children infant to 3. Written with parents in mind so that it is not full of medical-speak, and full of suggestions, this is a good book for anyone working with or parenting a child with low tone or multiple issues that interfere with language development.

I consider this book, along with the gross and fine motor skills books, my primary written resources for working with my 7mth son with Down Syndrome. The information is clearly written, easy to understand and comes with activities that you can do to help with speech skills. I use these books to supplement what we have learned from the early intervention therapists. I highly recommend them for any new parent of a child with Down Syndrome.

Don't put it all on your therapist to teach your child. Take it into your own hands...it is your child. This book is great for your child of any age. It is really good for someone who has a little one because it talks about oral motor issues that could delay the speech and how to work on them. Libby is the Speech guru in the Down syndrome world...but you may have already know that.

I have worked with Early Intervention for 10 years and bought this book to use with a client with Downs Syndrome. The information is great, practical and user friendly. It is a great book for parents and teachers, therapists and everyone. I am only disappointed that I lent the book to someone and forgot who!
