Children with Down syndrome have a wide range of speech and language abilities, and most need the help of a speech-language pathologist (SLP) beginning at birth to maximize communication development. Early Communication Skills for Children with Down Syndrome explains the role of a SLP, the stages of communication development, and how certain characteristics of Down syndrome, such as low muscle tone, hearing loss, and cognitive delays, can slow progression of those skills. Delays can lead to frustration and other problems for children who do not have intelligible speech until age 2 or later.

Throughout the new edition, the author incorporates the latest research on Down syndrome and communication development. She has added new chapters on augmentative and alternative communication and other high- and low-tech supplemental communication options, as well as articulation, and literacy (how reading aids in the learning of language, speech, and auditory skills). New checklists on evaluating and treating speech problems, and numerous home activities designed to help children master each stage of communication development have also been added.

What would you do if you were told your child would be born different...very different? When Sara and Jacob get the news that their baby will be born with Down syndrome, it threatens to destroy their marriage and their lives. Their world spins out of control sending each of them each on separate paths of self-discovery and Jacob into the life of a boy with Down syndrome named Alex who is a master pianist and changes both their lives.

They discover that their baby wasn't created by mistake but in fact by design. John 9:1-3 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. "Rabbi," his disciples asked him, "why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents' sins?" "It was not because of his sins or his parents' sins," Jesus answered. "This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.

When the church attempts to function without all of its parts, the body of Christ becomes disabled. Same Lake, Different Boat is a transformational work---designed to renew our minds to think biblically about disability in order that our lives, our relationships, and our congregations might wholly reflect Christ.

Stephanie O. Hubach (M.A., Economics) and her husband Fred lead the disability ministry at Reformed Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. They have been married since 1983 and have two sons: Fred and Tim, who has Down syndrome. Stephanie has served as chairperson of the Lancaster County MH/MR Advisory Board, as a board member of the ARC of Lancaster County, as board president of the Infant Evaluation Program in Centre County, and as a member of the Lancaster County Respite Coalition. She currently serves as chair of the Lancaster Christian Council on Disability. Stephanie frequently speaks at conferences, special events, and churches.

While the struggle for disability rights has transformed secular ethics and public policy, traditional Christian teaching has been slow to account for disability in its theological imagination. Amos Yong crafts both a theology of disability and a theology informed by disability. The result is a Christian theology that not only connects with our present social, medical, and scientific understanding of disability but also one that empowers a set of best practices appropriate to our late modern context.
