5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 3 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time to Talk: Implementing outstanding practice in speech, language and communication (David Fulton / Nasen) (Paperback)
Jean Gross has written an amazing book.

It is thorough and thought provoking, and distills the knowledge about children with speech language and communication difficulties with practical meaningful approaches.

She has managed to cross the boundaries between the research and practice, the therapists and teachers, the stategic planners and the parents, the models of learning English as an additonal language and the traditional developmental language models.

Language and communication skills in the classroom and throughout school are given the priority they need in Jeans view of Education. She draws the links together between delayed communication skills and attainment, behaviour, reading, life skills and poor preschool language experience.

This is a must read for every teacher, assistant, speech and language therapist, school improvement officer, headteacher, SENCO, indeed anyone involved in the broadest sense of Education. There is also much which would be of interest to parents.

This book deserves to be read widely, and to have the influence that is needed in Education today. I hope the inspiration in this book supports the improvement in practice in every school across Britain.

Jean Gross really is a champion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth waiting for, 22 Oct 2013

This review is from: Time to Talk: Implementing outstanding practice in speech, language and communication (David Fulton / Nasen) (Paperback)
I read this book one evening and even continued to read it at bedtime. It is readable, practical and theoretical. There are several practical ideas in the book but it is always backed up by evidence. This book should be required reading for all working with children but especialy for those working with those with speech,language and communication needs

This review is from: Time to Talk: Implementing outstanding practice in speech, language and communication (David Fulton / Nasen) (Paperback)
Bought this after being recommended it by a qualified teacher. It makes good links to the research and comes up with some interesting facts about the value of fostering good communication skills. Some of the case study examples have also given me some good ideas for lessons plans.
