[Post edited 11/6/2009 as the Handy Handouts site has undergone a major upgrade.]
While talking to the J-Man’s teacher about getting some picture communication gear, she told me about Super Duper Publications. They have an extensive catalog of useful products (haven’t ordered anything yet, but probably will), but our link for today is for their “Handy Handouts”.
They have a lot of useful material here about autism, speech, behavior, and more. A decent number of them are in Spanish too. There is some marketing tie-in for their Super Duper Publications site, but they are a business and they are providing good content for free here so don’t hold that against them.
You do have to register for a free account to access them, but it’s simple and painless. This also gets you access to the “Free Stuff” listed on the left side of their home page. About half of that is for therapists and other professionals, but there’s a lot of stuff for us too.
[ed. – If you previously created an account on Super Duper, it still works and still gives you access to certain materials. The materials on the Handy Handouts site do not appear to require registration anymore; all the ones I tried to access were freely available. Yay for them!
They also now have a Facebook page!]
I highly recommend watching some of the Product Demos. They’re pretty neat. Invariably when I look at some therapy toys and equipment I think, “What the heck is that for?” Now you can see some of these things in action. Always fascinating!
While we’re talking about Internet resources, don’t forget about Do2Learn. And feel free to post other similar resources in the comments!
