great resource book for SLPs (and parents),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The New Language of Toys: Teaching Communication Skills to Children With Special Needs, a Guide for Parents and Teachers (Paperback)
this is a wonderful little must have resource book for any early childhood educator/grad student.
I am an SLP working with preschools and this serves as the perfect guide to what a preschooler should be taught and know. At the end of each chapter there is a list of all the things the child should know by the end of the year. This helps (big time) setting SPECIFIC treatment goals for preschoolers. I have come across so many generic, useless IEP goals that dont apply to the child. The book goes from 0-6 years and it also gives ideas what toys to use and how to use them (if you lack in the creativity department, that may be useful) but I think the most useful part is the breakdown of what the child should know by a certain age. This is definatley a better, more useful developmental milestones checklist than any I have come across and cheap too! and its great to give parents ideas and information about what they should be working on with the child at home as well in clear, simple language.
