An easy-to-use DVD to help parents and professionals promote communication development in young children with social communication challenges such as autism and nonverbal learning disorders.
This DVD is a companion to the More Than Words Guidebook, and shows parents applying strategies to create structured, predictable environments in which their children learn to interact and develop more conventional and spontaneous communication in everyday situations. The easy-to-use DVD is an invaluable tool for both parents and professionals who support preschool children with social and communication challenges, such as autism spectrum disorder. The More Than Words DVD brings to life the research-based strategies parents can use in everyday activities to foster their children's communication skills.
With delightful real-life examples of children from 18 months to 5 years, this DVD makes it possible for the viewer to immediately apply the strategies that are so clearly demonstrated within daily routines, play, book reading and music activities. For easy access, each chapter is divided into strategies according to the child's stage of communication development and includes a special "Toddler" section. User-friendly menus provide quick access to real-life examples that foster children's communication. All sections of the DVD include examples of children at each stage of early communication development, including children who are nonverbal, those who use a few words and others who are able to carry on simple conversations.
