Books make a difference: Cast your vote for Kentucky books
You can vote as often as you like in this contest. Click Here and Remember to Vote today and tomorrow for KENTUCKY and remind others to vote for KENTUCKY to vote. -Ed Waggener
Kaleb is a seven year old, non-verbal child. He experiences many challenges throughout his day because he has severe Autism. Most of the time, it is hard for Kaleb to focus on an activity or to stay in one area for more than a few seconds.
Kaleb LOVES books and I use books in my classroom as an incentive with him. He loves the colorful pictures and he loves being read to. I can motivate Kaleb to speak by using the books we receive. He will begin to name the characters from the books with his limited sound patterns. If I pull out a book I received from First Book, he will sit and allow me to read to him. He will also take my hand and point to the pictures and verbally say the character's names. If Kaleb is having an "off" day, the books help him to settle and become calmer. He will line his books up and rock back and forth on them as he calms himself and begins to read.
Kaleb will also use sign language to ask for the books. I can get Kaleb to do a lot more things willingly if I show him these books as a reward. Kaleb loves books and First Book offers him the opportunity to be exposed to books that his mother would not be able to go out and buy for him.s/From Tina, a teacher
