Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of www.teachmetotalk.com as she gives a mom guidance and ideas for working on improving her vocabulary. Mom's questions are below. Since this mom has previously purchased Teach Me To Talk: The Therapy Manual, we'll be elaborating on ideas from the book and giving her specific page numbers for directions. If you have a child who is at the 18 month to 24 month language level but is having a hard time learning to use phrases and seems to say more words than he/she really understands, then this show is for you!
It seems kids need to be prepped just to go to preschool these days. If you're a mom who feels that pressure, like I do, or you simply have homeschooling in your heart for your littles but have no idea where to start . . . . then, don't despair! We have what you need to get going with homeschooling for tots and preschoolers. Don't miss our latest podcast episode on homeschooling for tots and preschoolers.

On Productive Play we are chatting about three great Fall books to read with your child. Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar are the mother/daughter co-creators of If Not You, Who.org - a fabulous website to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten.
Reading with a child provides many benefits and numerous studies have shown that students who are exposed to reading BEFORE preschool are more likely to do well in all facets of formal education. Listen in to what Elissa and Debi have to say about books and children. They are also sharing some great activities these books can inspire!
We are on the air Wednesday October 21 at 10amPT/1pmET and anytime in archive on WoMRadio - the show for mompreneurs, the new business woman.
Thanks to our show sponsor today, Everything Family.net. Meet them and all of our sponsors in our Mompreneur Marketplace, where you will find great mom-approved products, services, books and music!
How do you feel about The Justice System and how it’s leveled against our children? This doesn’t just apply to our children who are teens, this applies to all of our children from preschoolers to college and beyond. The school-to-prison pipeline is real, and more and more of our children are being systematically pushed into it.
In recent years black children have been escorted out of class by police for wearing the wrong shoes at school and upervised for holding up three fingers in a photo. As seen in the cases of Florida teen Kiera Wilmot and Texas teen Ahmad Mohamad, disciplinary action and law enforcement involvement might happen when black kids choose to demonstrate their scientific knowledge. Indeed, black students are three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended, according to data from the U.S Department of Education office of Civil Rights.
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com as she discusses ideas for a 3 year old client with autism who does not play with toys. We'll discuss the factors that contribute to and created this issue and the treatment strategies we've used to help him move toward playing with toys and more importantly, tie those activities to our long term goal for him, which is to communicate.
When I first started talking with his parents about play, their conclusion was: He doesn't like toys. That may be true, but it's not the REAL reason he's not playing. The truth is, he doesn't know how to play with toys. When any of us don't know how to do something, the likelihood that we will actually do it declines greatly. In the show, we'll talk about the steps we implemented to target play with toys, as well as his other needs.
Certified Music Development Specialist Ekanem Ebinne returns to talk to us about the impact that music has on early child development and some of the science that supports it.

"What is MOPS?
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.
We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS."
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world." (http://www.mops.org/)
Laura was invited to speak at the "Courage to Follow Your Dreams" event at a MOPS event in IL. If you'd like Jessica, Laura, or both Chicks to speak at YOUR MOPS event, let us know- we'd be honored!
