Better Hearing & Speech Month Giveaway!

In honor of Better Hearing & Speech Month, we're hosting a giveaway... featuring two of my favorite resources to use with children (at home or at school) to help foster communication!


What's in the Cat's Hat? Game- This is a seriously fun game... while helping improve memory & deductive reasoning skills at the same time. It also provides opportunities for answering and asking questions and developing sensory skills.


Visual Strategies for Improving Communication by Linda Hodgdon - This is an awesome resource for anyone who wants to improve their communication with children... especially those children with learning, sensory, or processing difficulties.


I use the strategies all the time at home with my son (and his friends)... and I even use the strategies when I am teaching my teenage students at church. This book doesn't just present information, but also shares many many examples to help demonstrate the strategies... which benefit all kids, not just kids with communication difficulties. 


So... how can you win?

  7. I would love to win this for my 3.5 year old son. He is autistic, and so communication is difficult for him. Any tools to help him learn and grow are always appreciated!

  11. Thanks for sharing both of these great resources. I would definitely play the Cat in the Hat game at home with my 2 year old. I'm also very curious about the strategies used in the book. I'm sure I could implement them at home with him and also share the book with my fellow teachers - seems like a great tool for any inclusion program.

  17. I'd love to be entered to win this! My oldest is almost 3 and has always had some trouble/been slow to communicate. We're working on it, but we definitely still have our bad days.

  18. I learned that not following directions can be a sign of hearing loss. It makes a lot of sense now, but I'd never really thought about it like that before.
