Interactive Activities Combining Speech Language Pathology and Adaptive Physical Education
Children particularly those on the autism spectrum, are able to acquire communication skills much more easily when their learning incorporates movement. Even very simple actions such as tapping and hand clapping can have a noticeable impact on their speech and language development.
Speech in Action is an innovative approach to learning that combines simple techniques from speech and language pathology with physical exercises that have been carefully designed to meet the individual child’s particular needs and abilities. This particle workbook describes the approach, how it works, and contains ninety fully photocopiable lesson plans packed with fun and creative ideas for getting both mouth and body moving.
This will be a useful resource for teachers, occupational therapists, and other professionals who work with children with delayed communication skills, as well as parents and caregivers who would like to support their child’s speech and language development at home.
