What a super, practical therapy resource! It is an innovative approach devised by the experienced speech and language therapist author following her encounters with increased numbers of children who had learned to talk but who were still unable to communicate effectively. Devised in the late 1990s, this theory has been used with success not only by the author but a wide range of educators. It promotes the good use of non-verbal skills in children and tackles the fundamentals from which communication difficulties arise. --Martine Horvarth, Early Years Educator
"Boyce stresses that her approach to communication differs from the traditional speech and language approach in that she has successfully trained support workers, teachers and social workers to deliver her programme. The assessment process is clearly set out and assessments are available for a range of ages from pre-talking babies and toddlers to teenagers.
Boyce makes some very interesting observations about the different ways in which girls and boys develop language skills and this is one of many engaging aspects of this useful and practical resource." --SEN Magazine
