Illustrated fictional story is told from the perspective of Michael, a boy who has a lisp. Michael discusses his own speech disorder (sometimes referred to as a "speech impediment"), as well as the speech disorders of a few of his classmates. He explains how children with speech disorders sometimes have trouble hearing sounds, which can also cause listening problems. Michael also talks about his speech club, where he and four other classmates work with a speech-language pathologist (SLP) to learn how to speak more clearly through various games and activities. Filled with positive language, this book also contains a kid's quiz and ten tips for teachers.
Other children can start to identify why a peer with speech disorder may be treated differently and begin to empathize with the peer. In addition, children with a speech disorder or children who have conditions that set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Includes a Kid Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. Softcover, 32 pages.
