This Gestures Poster and Handouts Bundle is the perfect addition to your early intervention sessions.
- Purchasing the bundle you save 15% compared to purchasing the two resources separately.
This Early Intervention Bundle contains two resources. Save 15% by purchasing the bundle, compared to purchasing both resources separately!
- This resource includes detailed therapist information (including a research overview) all about using gestures and coaching parents/caregivers in your sessions.
- Also includes 15 parent-friendly handouts with explanations about each gesture, and three ideas for how parents/caregivers can encourage the use of these at home.
- A gesture checklist, so you and the parents/caregivers can monitor the child's progress and development.
- Gestures included in this resource: giving, nodding and shaking head, showing, reaching (for), reaching up, waving, pointing, clapping, blowing a kiss, "shh", high five & thumbs up, "stinky" wave, and shrug. Also includes a handout about encouraging other gestures, and encouraging gestures with songs and rhymes.
This poster is perfect as functional decor in your speech pathology office or clinic waiting area. It is also a beautiful parent-friendly handout too.
This resource includes a therapist information sheet, a parent-friendly handout, and a bright and appealing poster showing the 16 gestures most children have developed by 16 months (based on the research by the FIRST WORDS Project, 2014). This poster comes in three color options- pastel, rainbow, and grey.
Ideas of how to use these posters in your early intervention sessions:
- Print them in large poster format and put them on display in your therapy room.
- Print them in letter/A4 size and use them as small posters for your therapy room.
- Print them in letter/A4 size and use them as handouts to share with caregivers and childcare settings.
- Print them in smaller size and use them as a reference guide/handout for yourself or parents and caregivers.
You know that the development of gestures is a crucial prelinguistic skill; gestures are precursors to language development. They are an early form of communication and have a predictable developmental sequence.
You have the knowledge, so why not make your session planning easier? Save time and reduce that feeling of overwhelm by getting these parent-friendly handouts to use in your parent-coaching sessions.
You can feel confident that you're delivering effective, evidence-based therapy interventions, and providing good-quality handouts for your families, without adding to your workload.
