Check it out for yourself to get recommendations for strategies that WORK to address both expressive and receptive language goals for toddlers.

    #257 Help! My Son Will NOT Sign... A Familiar Question from a Frustrated Mom

    in Parents

    Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of www.teachmetotalk.com as she answers the following question from a frustrated mom:


    “Hi Laura. Your videos and books have been a great help for our son. I have a question about sign language. We have been working with my son on signing for about 4 months and progress has been slow. He understands some signs but will not do them by himself. When I say a word and show him the sign he holds his hands out for me to do the sign with his hands. He will not do a sign without my help. He will even push my hands together for more and then hold his hands out but will not push his own hands together. Hoping you might have a suggestion for this. My son is 2 1/2 and is Autistic. He does not use any words yet. Thanks.”


    I have 5 or 6 different reasons he's not signing yet and then even more options for her. Listen for my advice! Read the written version of this question and reply.
