#259 Understanding the Chart from Building Verbal Imitation in Toddlers Book
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP from teachmetotalk.com as she discusses issues related to toddlers with speech-language delays.
Here's a question I receive at least weekly from a mom or an SLP:
"Dear Laura.... I've purchased your Building Verbal Imitation in Toddlers book and am using it with a few of my kiddos. I've skimmed the entire book and am having success with some of my harder clients that weren't making any progress before, but I don't understand when to progress a child to the next level. How long do I work on skills in one level before moving on? Can you point me to your specific criteria for each level in your book? I also think it would be helpful to list that information on your chart."
I wish it were that simple!!
In this week's show, we'll discuss how I use "the chart" diagnostically with toddlers with expressive language delays and how to use the information to plan therapy goals and activities for sessions.

Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she provides ideas for a mom who complained that her child can't sit still to work with her on developing language and has difficulty maintaining attention during therapy sessions.
From Laura... Here's the truth... MANY late talking toddlers can't (not WON'T) sit still. We'll BRIEFLY talk about why that is and then move on to ideas that WORK for our friends who need to move, move, move. Here's a list of things I do with my busiest little friends:
Do what they like!
Decrease demands overall so that a child doesn't feel "forced." Participation is your ONLY goal. This can dramatically help!!
Don't sit... MOVE! Target language during gross motor movement or outside playground activities such as sliding, jumping on a trampoline, swinging, etc...
Try social games where moving is a part of the game - Ring Around the Rosies, Row Row Your Boat, Ride a Little Horsie - verbal routines during those games to target receptive and expressive language.
Introduce play that involves moving - improvise a basketball game even without a hoop, bowling, launcher toys, and relay games
Work on Structured Teaching Tasks - TEACCH method
Over time begin to alternate activities move - sit - move - sit
Modify a child's space so that movement is less of an option. Beware....belting them into a high chair is usually NOT a good option!
Don't try strategies for older children like "if/then." Many times our little friend DON'T understand that promise.
