Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com for the third part of this audio/video podcast series ASHA CEU COURSE #0425 : Teach Me To Imitate Nonverbal Face and Mouth Movements: The Building Verbal Imitation in Late Talkers Podcast Series.

In this 8 part podcast series Building Verbal Imitation in Late Talkers, learn an effective hierarchy for teaching imitation skills to late talking toddlers and preschoolers using evidence based, science-backed strategies that emphasize imitation as the KEY component. This method delivers a practical framework for knowing where to begin working with a late talking child, provides ideas for what to try when a young child’s progress stalls, and can serve as your new approach when your standard methods don’t seem to be adequate for a particular child’s language delays.

In part 4 of this course, learn to:

  1. Review the levels of imitation with a parent or caregiver.
  2. Explain why we target nonverbal facial and mouth movements and gestures for late talkers.
  3. Discuss why this level may not be necessary for all late talkers.
  4. Demonstrate how to effectively model facial and mouth movements for parents and late talking toddlers.
  5. Troubleshoot when a child does not imitate facial and body movements.
