Speech & Language Therapy in Practice - Summer 2010 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Helen Burnford, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, based in Brigend, South Wales   

Speech & Language Therapy in Practice - Summer 2010I would recommend these books for families and professionals alike. They are a useful resource to be used as part of preparation for daily living or by therapists for use in narrative therapy groups or as part of topic based literacy or language groups in schools. They could also be used by families as reading books offering early readers the opportunity to bridge the gap between factual and fictional reading.

David Coleman - Clinical Psychologist"Routine and structure are really important for small children. Predictability always reduces anxiety and so the more children know about what to expect the easier they find things and usually the less tantrums they have. The Off We Go series of books provide a great, visual and easily understood, explanation of what to expect from a range of daily-life activities. These books will be helpful for any young child, not just those with special needs, to give them a better sense of what to expect and thereby reduce any anxiety. Because the books are designed to be read with your child it provides a good opportunity for warm interaction and could be a spark for lots of discussion – we all need opportunities like these to build strong relationships with our children."
