#354 When a Child Does Not Imitate Words Consistently and Frequently
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time3 months ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com as we discuss what to do when a toddler does not imitate words consistently. This is a very common problem with late talkers, and the solution is always the same, but a little counterintuitive. Instead of teaching them something new, we actually have to BACK UP to what a child can already (kind of) do - rather than tackling the immediate goal. Most of the time, late talkers are NOT developmentally ready to begin working at the word level - that's the problem! We have to use different strategies and it varies from child to child depending on what they can already do. Listen to the show for ideas!

#347 Strengthening Social Connections in Everyday Routines
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time6 months ago
In this week's show, join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com we're continuing the topic from last show #346 for using my hierarchy for treating toddlers with speech-language delays/disorders. This week we're discussing ways to improve a toddler's social connectedness with other people - especially his parents at home during everyday routines. First, we'll review red flags for differences in social interaction. Many times parents miss these characteristics in their own children. Many times therapists don't point these out because we either don't recognize them as red flags or we're too afraid of a parent's reaction. We'll talk about that on the show too! Our overall strategies for improving a child's ability to respond to you are: Consistently respond to him. Don’t let a toddler “check out” or be alone for long periods of time. Get eye to eye and face to face! Don’t force eye contact and interaction – invite it! Sound fun… less like an adult and more like a kid! Do what a toddler likes. Play, play, play…and then play some more! Limit distractions when you’re working on responding. Be the toy! Avoid power struggles. Lavish love! Be persistent in your attempts to join him. Reward a child’s efforts to respond to you. Final review… what “counts” as responding? Remember - Your #1 goal is INTERACTION! Listen for ways to work on social skills in everyday routines! Try activities that involve Movement, Music, Sensory Experiences, Social Games

Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S, CCC-SLP from teachmetotalk.com as she answers this question from an SLP:I feel like I often go through the steps of working on the 11 prelinguistic skills that you talk about in "let's talk about talking."  The kiddos build up a lot of their play skills and start to use signs and eventually get to single words.  Then, I feel like we plateau.  I have one little girl, specifically, who I'm feeling this way with.  She will be 2 in March.  She was a preemie and was getting OT services before she was transferred to my caseload.  She was a late walker and had some low muscle tone, which the OT addressed and continues to work on.  I was offering consultation services and the OT (who is fabulous) and the Mom (who is very good with follow through) worked on her play skills, imitation, social routines, songs, etc.  She has started using signs and single words.  Mom reports that she uses at least 100 single words spontaneously, but she's not yet combining words into two word phrases.  I've heard her use different nouns, verbs and some adjectives so I know she has a varied vocabulary.  But she won't attempt to imitate a two word phrase, yet she readily imitates single words.  Am I expecting too much too fast?  I feel like she has enough of the necessary skills to combine words, but she just isn't doing it yet.  Listen for my explanation and tips!

#329 Ideas for a Toddler Who Runs Away... Even from Things She Likes
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time1 year ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP from teachmetotalk.com as she answers an SLP's questions about a little client who runs away frequently whenever she and mom try to join her for play. Here's her question  I am currently seeing a 23-month-old girl who doesn't have a diagnosis. She is starting to vocalize purposefully. She does make some playful noises like sh, panting like a dog and eating and drinking sounds when feeding her babies. According to mom, she will inconsistently follow directions. Mom has been working on body parts, specifically her belly. As of now, she is not pointing to her belly. She was pointing to her eyes, but now she is not. Mom has been using physical assistance to help her point which she does not like at all!! She is beginning to imitate play routines like feeding her babies. She is receiving therapy from a special instructor for play. I completed your 11 skills checklist with mom and this little girl needs work on play, receptive language, imitation, attention, joint attention and turn taking. The biggest need that I see is her attention. I am constantly redirecting her attention back to activities. Even if she begins an activity and I join in to lengthen it, she is off to something else. Using physical assistance sometimes helps her to stay with an activity longer. She even runs away from activities that she seems to love like peek a boo. She smiles and laughs when we play, but she runs away as soon as I give her an inch!! Interestingly enough, when mom is with her, her attention is better. However, when mom or I join in her play, it’s almost like her job is done and she shuts off. Mom shrugs this off as her being stubborn. I don’t think stubborness has anything to do with it. Neither do I!

#326 Follow Up from Show #322
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time1 year ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP for a follow up show to #322. Six weeks ago, I walked an SLP mom of nonverbal 4.5 year old through the 11 skills toddlers master before words emerge. During that show, we identified some new areas of focus for her to try at home with him. At the end of the show, I asked her if she'd be willing to come back on periodically to talk about his progress. Today is the first follow up to that show. Listen as we update his progress and determine where to go from here. Even though you're listening to child-specific details, you can take this information and apply it to your own situation. If you're a therapist, this is how you follow up with parents with how things are going at home - especially if you're using a consultative model and aren't doing lots of direct treatment. I've never met this family in person so you should be able to get even better results if you're actually SEEING a child and parents! If you're a parent, listen carefully to the questions I'm asking this mother and answer them for yourself. Then apply the same concepts - even if your circumstances are a little different.
