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.

Ulysses Press provided this book to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.

Written by Cara Tambellini Danielson, a licensed and ASHA certified speech-language pathologist. She specializes in pediatric speech and language development. Her book was designed to help children learn first words and improve articulation.

It is a perfect little book for any toddler! My reviewer for this book was a two year old boy with a bit of a speech delay.

Target words in the book: up, mop, hop, beep, cup, hat, bat, hot, eat, boat, book, kick, cake, bike, duck.

Repetition used. The format allows for a little one to join in -and say- the last word of the sentence.

Illustrations are great. And I think that’s equally as important as content. In this book of few words, the pictures were clear and background color changes were cleverly different to keep attention. Easy to Say First Words - Inside Page 2

I received this book from Cara Rambellini Danielson in exchange for an honest blog review.
