When Speech Hinders Reading – Resources To Check Out

Special Needs

Malachi is our 8 year old. He is still struggling to learn how to read. We have tried all kinds of resources, but I am really starting to think that his speech is part of what is hindering his ability to learn to read. He is starting to pick up on the reading, but he is making very slow progress.

Now it is time to start looking into resources that we can use to create a speech therapy program at home. I started researching and brainstorming and I found a list of products to research and some catalog companies to check out. (there are NO affiliate links here)

Individual Products to research further:

Companies That Sell Speech & Language Products:

Have you used any of these products or companies? What do you think of them? Do you have any other speech therapy products you can recommend to me?

Amy from Raising Arrows shares her experience with Speech Delay Problems in her home and some great steps her family took to make progress.

I also found this wonderful article about Speech Language Therapy and The Homeschooler by Katie who guest posted over at Hip Homeschool Moms.

Special Children over at had an excellent article on different ways to do speech therapy in the home.

Pam did a wonderful guest post at Spell Out Loud answering some basic questions about speech therapy. She gives some wonderful suggestions for mom’s with little ones.

If you have any experience with speech problems and your children, I would love to read your blog posts or hear your stories. Please leave me a note in the comments.

Special Needs – Sensory Resources

We have Special Needs children in our home…

Our oldest child has Autism (Aspergers) and ADHD. All of our children have sensory issues to varying degrees. A few of our children have fine motor issues (and struggle with putting pen to paper). We have a child with eczema and kids with allergies (one child has an EpiPen which we have never had to use – thankfully!).

Each week, on Fridays, I want to focus on a different aspect of Special Needs. There are so many resources and pieces of information that I want to share with you, but all in due time. Today’s post is about Sensory Resources. I love looking at catalogs to get ideas. I have created a list of my favorite Special Needs Catalogs. You can get amazing ideas from the catalogs below to create your own sensory experiences at home.

Do you know of any other great Special Needs Catalogs?
