Pam Marshalla - known for publishing booka about apraxia, oral motor and articulation. I submitted an idea for her book, Carryover Techniques.

This is a visual-motor approach - kids really enjoy doing the hand movements and   making the sounds.  It can be a quick 5 minute warm-up for teachers too before snack or lunch time.

Pearson -The PLS-5 and PLS-5 Spanish are now available. I have been using the PLS-5 since December 2011. It was an easy adjustment to the changes. However, we had to transfer all the materials to a bag because it all doesn't fit in the provided box. Pearson is in the process of revising some of the materials, such as the pitcher. The new guidelines allow for dialectal differences. Click on the link to see PLS-5 Webinar. Pearson also sells the Goldman Fristoe-2 and Developmental Assessment of Young Children (DAYC) which covers 5 domains, 1 of them includes Communication.  This is an interview/observation style test which can be used with highly developmentally challenged children who are not responsive to traditional testing.  Pearson also carries the book 40,000 selected words in print and CD - I have the older version 30,000 words.
