Interactive Communciation and Play Checklists and Record Sheets
A Checklist and recording sheet for interactive communication and play
The checklist should be completed and retained by parents as they will have the most complete knowledge of their child's communication skills. Some parents will welcome the help of a teacher or speech and language therapist as the checklist is also to be used to plan language teaching activities. The list is intended to be used as a supplement to the speech and language modules in the Down Syndrome Issues and Information Series.
The information in these modules should be read before completing this checklist or starting a speech and language programme with your child. This checklist is part of a set of checklists covering all aspects of speech, language and communication skills. In addition to 3 vocabulary checklists there are checklists for interactive communication and play, speech sounds, and sentences and grammar. This checklist should be used in conjunction with the other checklists as all aspects of communication skills should always be considered in parallel.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
