Join pediatric speech -language pathologist Laura Mize from teachmetotalk.com and developmental interventionist Kate Hensler as they discuss issues related to communication delays and disorders in toddlers and young preschoolers. In this episode of "Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Kate" we'll be discussing a dilemma every SLP who works with toddlers experiences. Is it better to offer parents a "diagnosis" for a very young child or is it better to stick to a very general label like developmental delay or expressive language delay? Hmmmm.... we'll tackle this question with an SLP who recently experienced this situation. We'll discuss both sides of this issue - when/how it's warranted and when you may want to take a step back. As usual, we'll also be offering our own opinions and hope you'll join us!
