Books, books, books!
Books provide a fun and vibrant way to teach children about language. This is especially true for children who have a language delay or are on the autism spectrum. Topics such as idioms, synonyms, antonyms, and prepositions are topics that a lot of children who have a language delay find especially difficult, and finding an interesting resource to explain the subject to children can be frustrating. Well, not anymore! We have found a wonderful website called “The Best Children's Books” that lists of ton of fun books for children and a link to buy them. The list organized into a variety of subject, including the aforementioned topics. There are also subjects outside of language, such as math books, history, science, and even books on emotions. The wide variety, neat organization, and educational value of the books make this a great website to explore. You can visit the website by clicking here.
Another great list of books can be found here. It lists 50 great repetitive books for apraxia, and also a link on where you can buy them. The list includes classics such as "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See" by Bill Martin Jr, and "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Joffe Numeroff (though, sadly, "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" by the same author isn't on the list. We would like to recommend it as a 51st book).
The last book source we'd like to share is Thrift Books. Thrift Books sells donated books at an absurdly low price. There is a large variety of books for under $5 available. The link provided here goes to the children's section, but there are also textbooks and books for any age on this website. Since these books are donations, though, there is a limited stock. If the prices linked on the previous two websites are a bit high, we would recommend checking Thrift Books as well to see if they have it in stock.
