Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as we're continuing the series This Kid Doesn't Play! Solutions for Common Problems. This is part 4 in this series. Background: Sometimes, despite our best efforts, young children with language delays don’t seem to want to play with us. This situation might look like a “behavior” problem, meaning that the child is purposefully choosing  not to play with  you. That’s not always the case. On this series of shows, I hope I can help you look at these problems from another perspective. In this show we're discussing the following problems:

Uses an Adult's Hand to Operate Toys (or sign)

Odd, Repetitive, or Self-Stimulatory Behaviors

Throwing Toys Habitually instead of Playing 

A Kid Who is in Constant Motion
