A handy parent’s guide that turns professional language development into child’s play

Every new parent waits expectantly for their child’s first words. But if this milestone is late to arrive, they quickly become concerned. Luckily, Talking with Your Toddler contains speech language techniques that anxious parents can use to encourage late talkers to begin verbalizing. Based on proven speech therapy techniques, the 50 activities in this book encourage and expand language while simultaneously providing kids with endless entertainment. These educational exercises can be incorporated seamlessly into typical daily routines. From naming every clothing piece when getting dressed to exclaiming “pop!” when popping bubbles during playtime, these simple lessons make talking fun. The book includes step-by-step directions and detailed worksheets to ensure that the techniques work in an easy-to-follow, unintimidating way.

Paperback, 120 pages, Ulysses Press

This new title from Ulysses Press is targeted for parents of children ages 2 to 5. Full of helpful information, advice, and encouragement, I would recommend it to new parents and to parents of a little one (ages 2-5) with a speech concern. There is a lot of common sense reading and ideas already thought of. It had some needed reminders and new activities. A quick read.
