This practical book provides information about the development of language and communication and how to recognise children with speech, language and communication
difficulties. It also gives 'Helpful Hints' with ideas to promote the speaking and listening skills of all children aged 5-11 years but particularly those whose
communication development is delayed.
The book has been used for ten years as part of a course but Elklan has been asked to make this resource more widely available to parents so that the book can be
bought without having to attend any training. It is also suitable for teaching assistants and teachers wanting some core information and ideas.
The topics covered are:
Knowing all the skills involved in communication and the developmental stages
Encouraging appropriate adult-child interaction
Helping children develop their listening, concentration and understanding of language
Promoting the development of vocabulary
Expanding the structure of children’s sentences
Thinking about the questions we ask children
Sharing books to support vocabulary and language development
A great book with clear explanations of how communication works, lots of really useful strategies to support homework and some great tips to help with transition to secondary school.
