First Phrases: Our Possessions
The two sets of brightly coloured and clearly illustrated cards making up 'First Phrases' are designed to promote the crucial step from a spoken vocabulary of some 30 to 50 words, to two-word linking. The cards can be photocopied and made into peronsalised booklets which parents and carers can use with ease. They are specifically designed for use with children who have expressive language delay, expressive language disorder, verbal dyspraxia - and also excellent for children with generally delayed language development and learning difficulties. Of value to speech and language therapists, teachers and other professionals working with young children in clinics, playgroups, nurseries and special schools, this set focuses on noun phrases also. The pictures depict possessions that belong to mummy, daddy, a boy, a girl and a teddy. "Our Possessions" gives intensive practice of the same phrase type, using everyday words that are among the earliest acquired by normally developing children.
