A network to share best practices for children with special needs
In the spring, try a bunny blow game like the one I made pictured here - http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2010/04/frugal-fridays-vol-... Also, bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. And, of course, lots of word play and naimal/environmental sound play.
Also, maybe you could check out Nobody (not even my mother) ever Told Me That. An excellent book on feeding, speech, etc.
I am just new to this network. I have a program that includes oral motor activities. I introduce it in the special needs preschool and also gen ed preschools and the teacher and parapro carry it on all week. We have done this program for about 10 years. It includes starting with a gross motor task, fine motor/ goes to oral motor/ sound of the week, and sound cards, taste and then the day begins. It is a great option for social exchange as well, and it gives the different therapists the " sensory wake up to the nervous system" we all want It takes about 20 minutes start to finish. It has been well received. let me know what you may need. We put the whistles together with the preschool themes and plot it over the year. The SLP, and PT are also included as they can.
