A Room of Golden Shells:

Body Talk: Teaching Students with

Compiled by Woodbine House

Children and teens with autism and other developmental disabilities can be taught the language of nonverbal communication with the practical strategies developed by 978-1-60613-175-6 veteran special $29.95 education teacher Pat Crissey. More than 100 activities break down elements of body language into teachable components. Through role playing, games, art activities, watching video clips, and using worksheets, quizzes, and charts, she shows busy educators, speech-language pathologists, and parents how to teach body language:

100 Works by Artists and Writers with Down Syndrome

Disabilities about Body Language Pat Crissey

Cover Art: Study of Vincent van Gogh “View of Auvers”, 1980 by Christina Remson

978-1-60613-170-1 $29.95 On entering a room of golden shells, you might first notice how alike the shells are— their sameness of color, for instance—but soon you see the myriad variations in shape, texture, and size. Similarly, the artists represented in this volume share a common attribute—Down syndrome—yet their works of visual art and creative writing are as distinct as the individuals who made them.

Facial expressions Posture n  Body orientation n  Eye gaze n  Personal space n  Touching n  Gestures n  n 

   Created by artists ages 14 to early 50s from the United States and Canada, the 100 works were solicited via a contest and judged by Woodbine House staff. This dynamic collection of painting, ceramics, poetry, and prose marks one of the rare occasions that the creative talents of teenagers and adults with Down syndrome have been showcased outside their own community. Inspired by nature, popular culture, travel, master artists, faith, and dreams, these pieces dazzle us with mastery of craft, captivate us with a novel metaphor (such as the “golden shells” in 14-year-old Fiona Morris’s poem), and tell us how it feels to live with a disability.

   Choose from a range of scenarios to demonstrate to students such subtleties as knowing when a conversation is ending, what excitement looks like, or how to acknowledge someone with raised eyebrows. About the Author: Pat Crissey has more than 20 years experience as a special education teacher and autism consultant. The author of numerous teaching materials and curricula for children with special needs, she lives in McMinnville, Oregon.
