Biography

Noelle Michaels is a Speech and Learning Specialist who helps children increase their skills quickly by developing an authentic respectful relationship with the child and using fun, motivating activities and effective techniques. She is all about helping parents and children, so she combined 3 of her books into one volume entitled SUPERB THERAPY! and priced it low so that many children may be helped. Noelle developed SNACKademics to teach academic, social and speech skills during everyday snacks or meals, and kids LOVE it! Her VERBAL APRAXIA book is a must for school districts that are not qualifying children for services at 3 years old, even though they hardly speak. It also helps parents to better understand how to ask for the help their child needs. Noelle's book The BEST Way To Teach Your Child COLORS contains a learning hierarchy so you can go step by step, and avoid confusing a child. The hierarchy can be used to teach any type of vocabulary (animals, vehicles, etc). Noelle can be contacted for any questions or concerns. She is always willing to give her professional advice or opinion. :-)

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind the SNACKademics portion of your book?
When my two oldest children were young I taught them math terms with food. I never said Saltine or Ritz cracker. I always asked if they wanted a Square or Circle cracker. I asked if they wanted the perimeter of their sandwich intact or removed (the crust). They always loved math and never needed help with math homework...not ONCE! That is the story behind SNACKademics.
What is the story behind the Verbal Apraxia portion of your book?
Regarding verbal apraxia, I had a few frustrating interactions with certain school staff members who were sometimes refusing to evaluate children who had received help through early intervention and were now ready for preschool. Those children often had normal receptive language (understanding), but couldn't speak much at all. I wrote my Verbal APRAXIA book to explain to professionals and parents what verbal apraxia is and why it shouldn't be ignored. Using a complete communication score can be detrimental, and cause children who need help to be overlooked.
