Product description

Synopsis

As children with Down syndrome reach age 6, they encounter more complex speech and language demands in their learning and relationships with others. This is when gaps in communication abilities between children with Down syndrome and their typically developing peers begin to widen. This book provides parents and professionals with the information and resources they need to improve their child's communication at school, at home, and in the wider community.Written by Dr Libby Kumin, an expert in Down syndrome and communication, this is the only book about speech and language issues for children with Down syndrome ages 6 to 14, and is the sequel to "Early Communication Skills for Children with Down Syndrome". Encouraging and parent-friendly, it covers the scope of speech and language issues important for this age group, from understanding language pragmatics to building conversation skills and from using augmentative and alternative communication systems to improving speech intelligibility.
