#393 Prelinguistic Skill #8 Vocalizes Purposefully
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time6 months ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she continues her podcast series discussing prelinguistic skills all toddlers master before words emerge. This show reviews the 8th prelinguistic skill vocalizes purposefully. This milestone means that a child understands that he alone can control his own little voice. When I talk about this with parents, I describe this process as becoming “noisy.” All children, whether they talk on time or late, must progress through a phase of vocal play and experimentation so that they gain practice using their voices. Children may be quiet for a variety of purposes. Regardless of the specific etiology, parents should understand that all talking begins with the ability to volitionally produce sound. SLPs should provide parents an explanation of basic speech sound production, including simplified versions of the neurological processes that occur when we vocalize and generate language. Listen to the show for strategies to facilitate more consistent vocalizations in nonverbal toddlers. Therapists get 1 hour of CE credit for this show for only $5. Details at teachmetotalk.com.
#392 Prelinguistic Skill #7 Understands Familiar Words and Follows Directions
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time7 months ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com as she discusses prelinguistic (before language develops) skills all toddlers master before they begin to talk on this one hour audio-video podcast. This show is about skill #7 understands familiar words and follows directions. Speech-language pathologists refer to this skill as receptive language or how a child understands what he hears. Kids learn how to understand words before they learn to use words to communicate. When a toddler has difficulty following directions, we know that he will have difficulty learning to talk. Many times parents overestimate what a child truly understands. The ONLY way we know that a child is comprehending is by paying attention to how he responds when we talk to him. If a toddler does not complete verbal requests by 18 months, chances are, he has a receptive language delay. Watch this show for ways therapists and parents can help toddlers improve their receptive language skills. Therapists - get CE credit for this 1 hour course. See details at https://teachmetotalk.com. Find all info on the ASHA CEU page.

This show is about skill #6 Learning to Play with a Variety of Toys Appropriately. This milestone means that a child explores new toys, likes to play, uses his or her little body to manipulate toys, and is learning through play with lots of different toys. At this developmental level, we’re looking for the most basic kind of functional play with any common toy or very familiar object. This means that a child uses an item in the way it’s intended. We’re not discouraging creativity or free play, but we do want to see that a toddler understands how to use well-known items. Play is important for language development because play is a terrific and developmentally-appropriate way little kids learn (most) everything! Children who don’t play with toys miss vital opportunities to acquire and practice and variety of skill, including language. Research tells us that many times, language is closely linked with a child’s play skills. Therapists - get CE credit for this 1 hour course.https://teachmetotalk.com/asha-ceu-courses/

#387...11 Prelinguistic Skills... #2 Responds to People
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time9 months ago
Communicating always involves at least 2 people. When a child doesn't routinely respond and interact when you try to talk to him, play with him, or teach him something, it's highly unlikely he's learning anything! In my experience, parents first begin to suspect there's a problem with a child's development when he or she seems to ignore other people or avoid contact. Sometimes parents mis-characterize a child as being stubborn or lazy when the real problem is, he doesn't know how to respond. The good news is YOU CAN MAKE IT BETTER! Using the simple, straightforward tips in this podcast, you'll help a child learn to notice you and eventually, begin to interact with you.
386...11 Prelinguistic Skills... #1 Reacts to Toys and Objects
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time10 months ago
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she explains the 11 prelinlinguitic skjills all toddlers master before words emerge. In this show, we're discussing Skill #1 RESPONDS AND INTERACTS WITH THINGS IN THE ENVIRONMENT. Remember that this skill refers to a child's ability to react to sensory information - or things he can see, hear, touch, hold, and manipulate. The kinds of skills we want to facilitate at this phase are alerting, looking, calming, attending, reaching, grasping, holding, mouthing, waving objects, banging, and then  REPEAT!  Here's where we should begin to work with toddlers with severe developmental disabilities and not on teaching them to talk. Why? Because a child who can't do these kinds of things consistently, chiefly alert, react, and interact with things in his or her environment, is not developmentally ready to learn to understand and use words. In this show, I discussed specific activities, ideas, and toys to help improve this area. Remember that this information is best suited for speech therapy for toddlers with severe delays and any young child with a significant developmental disability. As a general guide, this would include children who functioning in the birth to 6 month developmental range. Learning that occurs in this phase happens through exploration with repeated exposure during sensory-enriched experiences. That's a mouthful to say and hard for many parents to understand, so here's how I break it down for the families I see. Our main goal for children who need help to master this first skill is to provide activities to help a child learn to use his senses to explore things in his or her little world. Ideas I recommend for this skill are listed in the post for show #386 at teachmetotalk.com. Therapists get 1 hour CE credit for this course for only $5! See details here at teachmetotalk.com
#385 11 Skills Toddlers Master Before Words Emerge
Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Friends
access_time10 months ago
Before any toddler begins to talk, he’s mastering a set of 11 distinct skills that develop before we begin to hear words. Let me explain how important these skills are… When any one of these skills is disrupted, there’s possibly a language delay. When several are missing, a stall in language development is inevitable. When a child struggles to attain many of these skills, a long-term communication disorder is likely. In this one hour audio-video podcast, we’ll review the 11 skills so that you can understand the key role each skill plays in language development. By the end of the show, you’ll have a pretty good idea for what you should work on to help any toddler begin to communicate.

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

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
