Augmentative and Alternative Communication Intervention Book Excerpt:

Augmentative and Alternative Communication Intervention: An Intensive, Immersive, Socially Based Delivery Model is ideal for school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and an excellent resource for interventionists (special education teachers, ABA therapists) and SLPs working in other settings who wish to develop an intensive, immersive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)-based intervention through a three-phase intervention process: assessment, intervention planning, and intervention implementation. Written by an SLP who has worked in a public school setting and saw to the application of theory to practice, the text provides detailed information regarding working with children who have complex communication needs and the background knowledge necessary for successful implementation of the intervention approach. Included are considerations for vocabulary selection for the beginning communicator, how to create a symbolically rich environment, detailed intervention approaches, and progress monitoring strategies that establish appropriate, measurable goals. AAC will no longer be an alternative means of communication but a best practice means of teaching communication in the SLP's or interventionist's repertoire. Making the leap from the theoretical to the practical, this essential book: Describes the intervention needs of children with complex communication needs and the limitations of current approaches (e.g., PECS, Milieu Training, Functional Communication Training).Operationally defines the goal of AAC intervention, discussing its complexities, including the limitations of a pull-out model.Introduces the Intensive, Immersive, Socially Based Approach to Intervention and briefly describes each phase of the intervention process.Discusses how AAC assessments differ from traditional assessments of speech and language skills, as well as provides an overview of different assessment models and their contribution to the intervention process.Examines the importance of training support staff to key components of this intervention model.Contains information on the application of language-based intervention strategies to AAC.Talks about the importance of progress monitoring and how to use functional communication measures and communication sampling, a new and innovative technique developed by the author, to monitor progress.Provides example lesson plans and example goals addressing each area of communicative competence.*Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book.

Social Understanding and Social Lives Book Excerpt:

Winner of the British Psychological Society Book Award (Academic Monograph category) 2013! Over the past thirty years, researchers have documented a remarkable growth in children’s social understanding between toddlerhood and the early school years. However, it is still unclear why some children’s awareness of others' thoughts and feelings lags so far behind that of their peers. Based on research that spans an extended developmental period, this book examines this question from both social and cognitive perspectives, and investigates the real-life significance of individual differences in theory of mind. After tracing the key age-related changes in the development of theory of mind, this book examines individual differences in relation to children’s cognitive abilities and their social experiences. Why might language or executive function matter for children’s social understanding? And how do children’s linguistic environments and relationships with parents and siblings contribute to their ability to reflect on people’s thoughts and feelings? The book also reviews the evidence for predictive links between early social understanding and later social behaviour. Using information gathered from classmates, teachers and the children themselves, the author investigates links between individual differences in early social understanding and in the quality of children’s interactions with friends, in their ability to resolve conflict, and in diverse aspects of school adjustment. Drawing on rich observational data gathered in this extended longitudinal study, as well as skills acquired during her early experimental studies of children with autism and a six year collaboration with Professor Judy Dunn, the author integrates both cognitive and social accounts of theory of mind. The book is ideal reading for researchers actively working in the field, graduate and undergraduate students specializing in developmental psychology, educational and health professionals, and parents interested in learning about children’s early social development.

Catastrophic Happiness Book Excerpt:

A comic and heartwarming memoir about childhood's second act from Real Simple journalist Catherine Newman. Much is written about a child's infancy and toddler years, which is good since children will never remember it themselves. It is ages 4-14 that make up the second act, as Catherine Newman puts it in this delightfully candid, outlandishly funny new memoir about the years that "your children will remember as childhood." Following Newman's son and daughter as they blossom from preschoolers into teenagers, Catastrophic Happiness is about the bittersweet joy of raising children -- and the ever-evolving landscape of issues parents traverse. In a laugh out-loud, heart-wrenching, relatable voice, Newman narrates events as momentous as grief and as quietly moving as the moonlit face of a sleeping child. From tantrums and friendship to fear and even sex, Newman's fresh take will appeal to any parent riding this same roller coaster of laughter and heartbreak.
