Expressive Language Skills

LDA cards: These language cards are especially designed to meet the receptive and expressive needs of young children and to engage their interest. We show children using the things children use and doing the things they do! This range includes photo cards which clearly depict real-life objects and situations, and picture cards with charming illustrations that will encourage story-telling and expressive language.

Expressive Language cards: The ideal way to stipulate children's expressive language - particularly the vocabulary needed to descibe sequences of events, thoughts and feelings. They will then be able to use this vocabulary for narrative, decriptions, recognition of emotions and reasoning. The activity cards have been written by speech and language therapist.

User group: The cards are versatile enough to be used by teachers, therapists and teaching assistants for group or individual work.
