"Small Steps Forward: Using Games and Activities to Help Your Pre-School Child with Special Needs"


Book by Sarah Newman

Resource/book information/review from GPParents@yahoogroups.com

When young children are diagnosed with conditions such as Down's syndrome, autism or other forms of developmental delay, there is much that parents can do to help. "Small Steps Forward" provides parents and care givers with the information they require and a host of ideas to encourage their child's development. The games and activities suggested in the book use toys and materials which most children will already have, and involve no special preparation. They are also fun to play.
The book is divided into eleven chapters with a foreword that defines how the book is structured along with instructions on how to use the book.

The chapters: How to Survive; What Everyone Needs to Know; Cognitive Development; Language Development; Physical Development; Sensory Development; Social Development; Emotional Development; Additional Practical Advice and The Support Your Child Should Expect. Also included is a chapter on resources which includes support organizations and suppliers of toys and equipment for children with special needs.
