  • My favorite book on IEPs in the U.S. is 

    From Emotions to Advocacy.

    I also like The Out-of-Sync Child. 

  • I really liked

    Early Communications Skills and Language for Children with Down Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals by Dr. Libby Kumin

    Nate does not have Ds but I saw it at the library and checked it out. It had a lot of GREAT speech information and communication support ideas for any child. It is organized by communication development stages and not by age. Just figure out where your child lands and work from there. There is big index in the back with web pages for more info and lists of children's book for language stimulation based on the skill you are working on (two words, manipulatives, predictable phrases, colors as well a books for specific speech sounds /p/, /b/, /th/, etc.)
