If you liked this show, you should follow Teach Me To Talk.

Join Laura Mize, pediatric speech-language pathologist, and Kate Hensler, developmental interventionist, as they discuss issues related to communication and developmental delays in babies, toddlers, and young preschoolers.

We'll begin by discussing how important it is to be warm, affectionate, and fun when establishing an initial connection (and ongoing!) with toddlers.

Today's question is  from an SLP who believes that several children on her caseload can talk but revert to gestures rather than using words and needs ideas to help move a child to words.

If we have time, another therapist has requested that we discuss the stages of play.

I hope you'll join us!
