More About This Textbook


New skills are traditionally taught in isolation from one another, regardless of the fact that the brain is a multi-functional parallel processor, taking in information at many different levels and processing this information in many different ways. Speech and language abilities are more easily acquired when body movement is involved, and this workbook sets out a practical approach to putting this theory in motion and enabling communication in hard-to-reach individuals. This fully-photocopiable book is based on a tried-and-tested synergistic approach, designed to combine occupational therapy and adaptive physical education with speech-language pathology, creating lessons that are fun and functional for educators, family and professionals alike. Packed with lessons suitable for both neurotypical students and those on the autistic spectrum, the versatile plans suit young people of all abilities, and use a multi-faceted approach that combines their capacities to develop physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally. Following an exploration of therapeutic approaches, the book goes on to discuss feelings and figurative ideas, alongside physical, creative and crafty ideas to get both body and mouth moving. This book will be a valuable resource for educators, family members, and professionals working with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
