Books, Books, Books

Here are some of Little Speech Gems favorite books and what concepts we teach with them.

We love incorporating Social Thinking concepts by Michelle Garcia Winner into our lesson plans. Some concepts we consistently teach include  “The Group Plan”, “Expected and Unexpected” and “Size of the Problem”. If you are not familiar with these concepts as either a therapist or parent, we highly suggest exploring them.

 To teach the Group plan, we LOVE:
