Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize and developmental interventionist Kate Hensler as they discuss issues related to toddlers with language delays on Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Kate. In this episode we'll begin a series on expressive vocabulary development and the background strategies for building vocabulary in late talking toddlers. Often parents wonder... why isn't my child able to answer questions or have a conversation with me? One reason is because the child lacks the vocabulary to be able to respond. (There are other reasons too and we'll briefly discuss those as well!) Tonight we'll be discussing the kinds of words that dominate a new talker's vocabulary and how to elicit those kinds of words during daily routines and in play.
