Help children enhance their idiom comprehension and recall with this evidence-based speech therapy resource!

Read Between the Lines!™ was created by experts in the field of speech and language development to teach idiomatic language in a new way. It is done using themes.  Themes allow children to learn and then recall idioms in day to day conversations. In this resource, idioms are brought to life through whimsical illustrations.

Idioms are a common challenge for many children, but this innovative tool captures their attention with 10 different and recognizable themes which include: 

  1. School
  2. Clothes
  3. Food
  4. Sports
  5. Colours
  6. Animals
  7. Head and Face
  8. Legs and Arms
  9. Money
  10. Numbers

Who is this language development tool helpful for?
