We'd like to learn some makaton as a way of helping ds with speech (he is 1 yr, but delayed, doesn't babble, is waiting to see a SALT). I don't particularly want to start a class, and wondered if there was a book or dvd that anyone could recommend.
Hi, I did a salt run half day course a couple of years back but I already knew 90% of the signs from watching Mr Tumble with my ds!! I can't thank him enough as it helped ds so much. I have started watching again with dd (16 months) as she is not talking at all yet, I'm also waiting for salt for her.
Loads of things to look into. Funnily enough 3 Makaton books plopped through my door today, which my sister had bought me from amazon for my birthday. I was a bit to see that they cost £22 and are tiny, one sign per page, about 20 pages in each book, 3 books. I think I might look at all the things that you lovely people have mentioned and swap them for something else.
I'm glad that none of you said i should go to a class, life is too frantic at the moment! We are recording all the Something Special's, so that we can watch them with the dds, who are going to try and learn it too (which i figure will help ds)
Hahaha at the idea of being stalked, I am far too dull to be stalkable!
Thankyou for the kind offer SignandSmile, I'll pm you.
