Educational Website Reviews
I wanted to share two excellent resources we utilize on the regular here in our household-
*Do2Learn : Our speech therapist introduced us to this site. It has tons of *free* printables that make life for Brian so much easier- clipart, schedules, and organizers. The site has art projects, games, and our all-time favorite "Sounds Sing-A-Long". They are videos of a speech therapist singing catchy songs emphasizing on different sounds. She over- enunciates so the movements made by her mouth are very clear and that is so helpful with someone as visual as Brian, and most children with autism.
*Starfall: This one was introduced to us by Corbin's kindergarten teacher. We haven't fully explored the site but have exhausted the "ABC: Let's Get Ready To Read" section. Corbin needs a little extra help with his phonoligical awareness and this seems to be the key. He doesn't even realize that he is learning and asks everyday to go on the "star site". Each letter has it's own page where it continually gives the sounds of the letter over and over again. Brian has even started using it as he does know his letters receptively. He likes the games at the end of each section, as does Corbin.
