Speech and language skills are a vital part of being able to communicate with others and express one's own needs. The Challenge Me!™ Speech and Communication Cards provide fun and dynamic challenges for children aged 3-12 with any form of speech problem, whether this is a severe problem which is related to a motor disability or a general delay in speech. This set of beautifully illustrated full-colour cards with accompanying instruction booklet will be an ideal creative tool for parents and professionals working to improve a child's speaking skills.
The cards provide a variety of fun activities designed to improve breathing techniques and use of speech apparatus such as the mouth, tongue and nose; control extra salivation; moderate volume, tempo, rhythm and intonation of speech; and improve sound production and clarity of words and sentences. The 32 page booklet provides guidance for using the cards, with background information about teaching speech and communication to children and ways to use the cards most effectively. The author also gives tips for improving speech and language in everyday life.
These user-friendly activities will make speech training enjoyable for both children and their facilitators and are great for use in the classroom, at home, on a one-to-one basis or with a group of children.
