My Up & Down & All Around Book
A sturdy hardback book, photographs of children with Down syndrome to help introduce many of the most frequently used prepositions--words that tell something about location or time.
Where is up, where is down? Are you in your house or out? Is your friend standing in front of the tree or behind it? These are just a few phrases that My Up & Down & All Around Book inspires. Children with Down syndrome often experience speech and language delays and can take a little longer to master the use of prepositions than their peers. Facing pages feature many opposites--Before and After; Above and Below, for example--and corresponding pictures of toddlers and preschoolers with Down syndrome illustrate the concept behind the words. Kids up to age six will love this little book. At the end of the book, a section written by Libby Kumin, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, speech-language pathologist and author, provides parents, teachers, and therapists with tips on how to expand their child's language skills, using the words in sentences, and tailoring the book to a particular child's needs.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
