     The New Language of Toys: Teaching Communication Skills to Children With Special Needs, a Guide for Parents and Teachers
Publisher: Woodbine House
Author(s): Sue Schwartz

(2004 iParenting Media Award Winner) Many young children with special needs experience language delays and need additional help to build language skills. What better way to encourage communication development than through play? The completely updated third edition of THE NEW LANGUAGE OF TOYS, a perennial favorite of parents, speech-language pathologists, and early interventionists, offers a plan for doing just that.

The new edition presents sixty-five new toys and accompanying toy dialogs to use with children with a wide range of special needs from birth through age six. These sample toy dialogs show parents how to play purposefully with their child--using store-bought and homemade toys--to provide language learning opportunities and stimulate language development. The exercises are fun and educational, too, as parents help their child build receptive language skills (understanding), expressive language skills (communicating), and speech.

THE NEW LANGUAGE OF TOYS is organized by language developmental ages and each section includes:
toy dialogs; numerous photographs; a toy list; a list of suggested vocabulary and communication concepts; children's book bibliography; a checklist to track progress.

In addition, this book provides important background information about language, its sequential development, the causes of language delays, and how play can enhance language development. It also explains the use of videos, DVDs, television, and the computer as language enhancers. The resource lists are extensive, offering toy manufacturers and catalogs, support organizations, children's book information, and suggested materials for homemade toys.

With THE NEW LANGUAGE OF TOYS, parents can help their children make gains in their language development and have an enjoyable and rewarding experience while doing it. It's also a great tool for collaboration between parents and professionals.

     The science discoveries of today could be the toys of tomorrow.: An article from: Canadian Chemical News
Publisher: Chemical Institute of Canada
Author(s): Graeme Rodden

This digital document is an article from Canadian Chemical News, published by Chemical Institute of Canada on November 1, 1993. The length of the article is 1344 words. The page length shown above is based on a typical 300-word page. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Digital Locker immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

From the supplier: The sale of science-related toys has flourished and sellers attribute this to the parent's awareness of the important role of science. Parents try to inculcate an interest in science in their children while they are still young so that they will be at ease with scientific formulations and they will have no inhibitions with their science subjects. Some of the subjects which these toys deal with are chemistry, biology, anthropology and even engineering.
