Are you concerned about your child’s speech and language development? Is your child already attending speech therapy? Do you have a family history of a speech disorder and want ideas on prevention? Do you want ideas on how to best talk to your child?
I created this site to:
To provide parents and professionals with clear, researched based information on speech and language development and disorders AND give ideas on how to incorporate speech and language practices into everyday life.
The thought of your child having delayed speech or language or difficulty with anything can be scary and overwhelming. Not to mention the time consuming and daunting task of sorting through all the information on the internet. What is true? What is necessary?
Sometimes...you don't even have anything to worry about!
Sometimes...there are simple changes and ideas that can PREVENT difficulties.There is something here for everyone. Everyone can benefit from a language-rich household!
Being informed and educated is half the battle!
I am a speech language pathologist and have been working with toddlers, adolescents, and adults for over 8 years.
From my years of experience, I know one thing to be certain - parents are not just parents. We are our children’s best teachers, therapists, and advocates. Parents possess the REAL ability and the power to make the real difference through their awareness and work with their children.
To do so and to do a good job, we need to be informed and educated!
Feel overwhelmed? Don't!
