In Reply to: Re: Seeking activity ideas for child with speech delay posted by Barb on June 17, 2000 at 20:15:09:

I am not very familiar with autism, but I had met a wonderful woman & her 5-year old autistic son today. (I actually came here to learn more about it.) I talked with her a bit & she thought my idea was wonderful! I am excited to get together with her & her son to see if I would be able to help them. It seems he is into a multi-sensory mode & loves to touch a certain texture & bright colors. Have you ever considered using felt to teach your child? There is a lot out there to offer educational supplementing to children's special needs. I am a storyteller & know the value of visual stimulation & interaction for young children. Feed-back from many speech pathologists says it works beautifully for speech delays & impairments! It's so wonderful to see their little eyes light up when they remember & say a word, a story or even a song! Again, I'm not sure of your specific needs, so maybe felt wouldn't work, but I'm so excited to meet with this gal & her son to see if I can make a difference in HIS life & to teach myself about other special needs. If you have any input for me, please let me know!
