Feeling Spooky with BOOks

Take a look at some of our favorite Halloween books for a spooktacular read to share with your child!


Who’s There on Halloween? by Pamela Conn Beall & Susan Hagen Nipp

This book encourages readers to piece together clues  to name the hidden halloween characters throughout the book. Encourage your child to use the clues and describe what the hidden characters could look like.



The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams
This book is about an old lady who walks through the woods and meets scary, spooky things along her way that try to scare her. She tells the spooky things that she is not afraid even as the different things begin to follow her. This book is a good tool to work on answering “wh” questions, sequencing and listening. Each spooky item the old lady comes across makes a sound which you can also pair with body movements to increase interaction with your child. 
What’s in the Witch’s Kitchen? by Nick Sharratt
This book is filled with both tricks and treats. Bold illustrations consist of two-way magic flaps that offer both heebie-jeebies and comical options for what is inside the kitchen. The illustrations are sure to keep your child intrigued and make for a good opportunity to discuss what else you could find in a witch’s house or in your own home.
Go Away Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberley
Turn the pages and the monster grows! As the monster grows have the child describe what is being added to the monster (color, shape, body part, etc.) When your child is ready to show the monster who is in charge, you can continue turning the remaining pages and watch as the monster disappears.
Five Little Pumpkins illustrated by Ben Mantle
This book will have toddlers chanting along with this popular rhyming book. This a great book to work on basic concepts such as counting. Craft 5 pumpkins on popsicle sticks or turn them into finger puppets to help narrate the story.
I Spy Spooky Night by Walter Wick and Jean Marzollo
This “I Spy” book takes children through a haunted, old house at night where they can hunt down spooky items. The stories and riddles along the way make for endless activities.

Patient Reviews

Crystal Scheibe

Great place, glad we found them. Been going to Medina over 2 months now and he loves Lauryn and Kyler. Wish they had more ABA therapy places available... live in Wooster and long drive everyday.

Karrie Swan LaRock

My 11 year old son has dyslexia and has made noticeable gains in working At LLA THERAPY. Katie is strong in her approach toward him and also keeps him comfortable enough to perform well. We will continue visiting both the Fairlawn and Hudson offices and recommend them highly.

Ron Monroe

My 9 year old just completed about 9 months of weekly speech sessions (due to his stuttering) with Matt Hagge at LLA and we are thrilled with the experience and results. What I thought might be a negative (what kid really wants to go to speech class?) was made very positive by Matt, and my son never hesitated or complained when we talked about class. He really enjoyed it and really took what Matt taught him to heart. His speech has been greatly improved and we definitely recommend LLA. Thank you so much!

Heather Dougherty-Pantoja

My son’s Occupational Therapist, Jess, is an amazing OT! She gives practical tips on working with my son at home and school!

Terri Apgar

I cannot say enough good things about LLA Therapy. My daughter was a client of Teal Simmons’ for approximately 2 years and was just released from speech therapy! She was diagnosed with Apraxia in 2015 and worked with Teal twice a week. Through Teal’s application of PROMPT therapy, my daughter had age-appropriate speech after one year. All of the staff we interacted with at LLA were absolutely wonderful. They really care about what they do and making sure your child achieves their goals.

Kelli Geisler Davisson

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for my son as well as my family! My son always asks, "When can I go see Ms. Jeannine again, is it Monday??" He has also made huge gains in only 5 months! I would highly recommend LLA and have already shared my experience with friends looking for services!

Victoria Hansford-Price

We are so grateful for our Speech Therapist Ms.Teal. We have seen a great improvement with our sons confidence and communication abilities since we have started "Prompt" therapy. What we love the most about LLA and Ms. Teal is that Kohl feels comfortable and relaxed which has played a critical role in his progress. Thank you Ms. Teal for all you have done.

Laura Lee Hogsett

They have helped in numerous ways. Speech, OT and behavioral. I've had numerous compliments on my son's progress thanks in very large part to LLA. I would recommend LLA before I recommend our local children's hospitals, though they are good, they don't have the staff that LLA does.

Amy Furukawa

We had a great experience with Matt Hagge at LLA! Our Middle School age son was becoming very conscious of his voice, which is nasal due to a cleft palate. Matt helped him to better form his sounds and project his voice in a way that makes the unavoidable nasality less noticeable.Our son is more confident and outgoing & even took on a speaking role in the church play. Matt has the perfect personality to relate with our son, and we would recommend him to anyone needing speech therapy services!

Jessica Havalotti

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend LLA. Miss Grace was so amazing and I can't believe how quickly our daughter showed improvement. Thank you!
