Communication Development Profile- With CD ROM

$99.95 inc GST $90.86 ex GST

This practical CD-ROM resource provides a simple, shared framework to help speech & language therapists work more effectively with the families, careers and teachers of children with severe and profound learning disabilities. The Profile immediately improves the way therapists support and advise teachers and families, and consequently results in a more united and holistic approach towards the child’s development. It Provides a clear descriptive breakdown of five key areas of language and communication development from birth to the development and use of grammatical sentences. Areas are: Attention Comprehension (what the child understands) Expression (how the child communicates) Sound system Use of communication (what and why the child communicates). Creates an individual and visual representation of the child’s development across each of these key areas, facilitating joint discussion and identification of the skills most needing support. Enables information from therapists’ assessments and parents’ or teachers’ informal observations and experiences to be combined creating a more equal and share view of the child’s skills in their everyday life. Establishes the communicative phase that the child is working within, therefore enabling the most appropriate style of speech and language therapy intervention to be identified, based on the child’s developmental learning style and needs. Results in a reduction in dissatisfaction and misunderstandings when identifying targets and setting activities with both teachers and families, and in agreeing speech & language therapy provision.
