Isabella is a spirited girl who enjoys shouting out her thoughts, ideas and feelings. In fact, she loves using her loud voice so much; it’s earned her the nickname “Decibella!” Young readers will be entertained as they see how Isabella learns the “five volumes” of voice and discovers that different situations require a different tone. Award-winning author Julia Cook uses a fun, yet educational, style to show kids how and when to use their five voices – whisper, 6-inch, table-talk, strong speaker and outside. Part of the Communication Series!, which emphasizes skills to help young children be better communicators.

Many school-aged children with developmental challenges need help with their listening, language, and whole-word reading skills. Targeting Language Delays explains how to teach these skills in sequential steps using more than 100 goals and activities that can be incorporated into an IEP or used for home practice.  Part 1 offers background and tips on improving communication skills; Part 2 contains chapters on these key language concepts:  directions; no & not; same & different; yes & no; nouns; classification & categorization; verbs;  descriptors; listening skills; sentence structure; whole word reading.  Thorough enough for SLPs, yet accessible enough for parents, this manual provides everything needed to introduce, teach, and mark the progress of each goal, along with suggested materials and references.

This new book features three pick-your-path stories about Stretch More, a rubber- band character who loves video games and skateboarding, but also has behavior issues that frequently get him in trouble. If you know a child like Stretch—one who has difficulty adapting to changes, handling frustrations, and problem solving—then The Adventures of Stretch More can help!

At key decision points in each story when Stretch could choose to be flexible or not, readers take control and decide how Stretch reacts, then turn the page to see the consequences of his behavior.  This is the first children’s book to demonstrate Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS), a therapy method that presumes kids act poorly because they lack the skills to deal with challenging situations. Together parents and children learn how to defuse the tension and build a more supportive approach to improving behavior. A perfect book for kids aged 8-13 who have ADHD, Tourette’s, OCD, or Asperger’s that also includes an information section for parents.
