Communication Skills in Children With Down Syndrome: A Guide for Parents (Topics in Down Syndrome)


Communication Skills in Children With Down Syndrome: A Guide for Parents (Topics in Down Syndrome)
by Libby Kumin
Comments: Children with Down Syndrome are often delayed in developing speech but can compensate for this delay by using sign language and other skills in a technique called Total Communication. This guide provides a wealth of information about speech and language development in children with Down syndrome. Parents learn what to expect as communication skills progress from infancy through early adolescence, how Down syndrome can affect those skills, and what they can do to maximize their child's potential in this crucial area of development. This book was recommended by our son's speech therapist.

Fragile X


The Fragile X Child


The Fragile X Child

by Betty Schopmeyer, Fonda Lowe
Comments: This 1992 piece of work was a landmark for the understanding of this tragic gene mutation. Very little was understood about it and there is still much to learn. Schopmeyer and Lowe explore many aspects of the Fragile X Syndrome including its history, genetics, symptoms, and therapy techniques. As this book was published in 1992 it does contain outdated information such as the use of facilitated communication which was found through double blind studies to not truly work. Despite the improvements that have been made, I would still recommend this book for anyone of whom this syndrome has affected their lives. It gives one a much better understanding of the life of a Fragile X Child.
