SLP Summer Reads

FullSizeRender (1)

It seems to be the cool thing to do for SLPs who work in the school setting: read, read, read over the summer! This is my first summer in the schools and I’m hoping to get some quality reading time in. Below are my recommendations for both speech/disability/therapy related books and then some non-therapy related ones, because it’s summer! I”ve read some of them, but not all! Leave your favorites in the comments. I’d love some new ideas!

{thanks for reading}

    Congratulations on your wedding! My recommendations are Neanderthal Seeks Human, The Rosie Project and A Man Called Ove (all characters with ASD).

    During the summer, I like to read for FUN and enjoyment! Books by Jeffrey Deaver (mystery/suspense with a LOT of plot twists); Maeve Binchy (an Irish writer who is a fantasic storyteller–you KNOW the characters); and totally silly–the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich. I’m also loving the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon (those are some HUGE books, so if you’re traveling, put them on Kindle).

    I enjoyed Out of my Mind, it’s about a girl who has cerebral palsy and her journey after receiving a speech generating device. 🙂

    Thanks for the great ideas! A commenter above suggested The Rosie Project which I also love. Look Me In The Eye is an interesting memoir about a man who found out he has Asperger’s as an adult and reflects back on his childhood. For fun, I’m reading Mary Kubica’s books – suspenseful and easy-to-read. Titles include The Good Girl, Don’t you Cry and Pretty Baby.

    Life Animated by Ron Suskind is amazing! Ron tells his story of having a child with Autism and how important, using his interests was in connecting his son to others and learning. I’d also second Uniquely Human by Barry Prizant.
