In the Spring of 2015, when I set out to create my first line of therapy materials, I had specific ideas about what I wanted. There was a short list of requirements: a sturdy box, bright, contemporary photos, durable, wipeable cards, thought provoking questions and an available Spanish translation.

Imagenes Para El Progreso: Espanol.
This 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch booklet is designed to accompany the Pictures for Progress flashcards. A spiral binding allows the book to lie flat and holds the pages neatly together. Made of thick card stock, the sturdy pages are designed to withstand daily wear and tear.
With large print, and numbered, full color thumbnail pictures, users can easily locate the translations that correspond to the flashcards. Containing two translations on each page, users can see the translated questions for up to four cards at a time- this prevents excessive page turning or the perception of disorganization that can be distracting during a therapy session.
Knowing that there are numerous regional Spanish dialects, extra time and attention went into the translation process. While there is no such thing as one size fits all, this translation offers language that is appropriate for use in a great variety of geographical regions where Spanish is spoken.
You can find this new Spanish edition in the Spontaneous Speech Store at SpontaneousSpeech.com.
To have a second language is to posses a second soul.
