If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least brain-friendly. This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
Speech therapy worksheets can be an extremely useful tool to help facilitate parents of children who are either suffering from a speech impediment or whose expressive language is lagging behind where they ought to be with respect to their peers. It is not enough to simply send your child to see a licensed speech pathologist once or twice a week. Parents also play an extremely vital role in helping their developmentally challenged children overcome their speech delay. By devoting just a little bit of time each and every single day with your child, you can make a difference in helping to accelerate the process of bringing your child up to speed in terms of his or her language development.
NEVER use "skill and drill" worksheets. These are the worksheets just made up of columns of problems. There are better materials out there, so do not resort to skill and drill. The very worst problem of skill and drill worksheets is the greatly increased chance of a practiced mistake. The same problem will likely appear several times on the same sheet. A wrong answer once means a wrong answer several times; and a practiced mistake takes hundreds of correct repetitions to fix. This danger alone is important enough to never use any worksheet. I am quite serious about how difficult it is to repair a practiced mistake. Learning is hard enough. Re-learning is much more difficult.
