Summary

Early and social interaction skills are essential for every child to get the best start in life. Skills like language, eye contact, and self-regulation are just some of the things your child needs in order to excel - personally and academically!

Since the pandemic, both parents and teachers are becoming more concerned about children’s abilities to interact. On top of that, there are delays in referrals to specialists.

According to the Education Endowment Fountain, in September 2020, 20-25 percent of children starting school needed help with language skills compared with the previous year.

Are you worried that your child isn’t showing the typical social interaction skills for their age? Are you waiting for a referral and frustrated there isn’t more you can do? Is your child receiving speech and language therapy, but do you want to do more for them?

In Speech Therapy for Toddlers you will discover:

  • One hundred and thirty-seventh games and activities that require everyday objects you have at home - or just your time
  • How 5 minutes of your time can make the world of difference to your little one
  • Eight age-appropriate checklists to know that your child is on the right track
  • Amazing insights into leading authorities and the latest research in the field of early and social interactions
  • How to help children improve their speech and language development with targeted speech sound books
  • Recipes to create with your little one - from biscuits to face paint
  • How other parents in your shoes have overcome what seemed the impossible with simple solutions
  • Fifteen social stories that you can adapt to help your child, from going to the dentist to making friends - plus a free comic strip conversation to inspire you
  • The importance of all family members learning about their emotions and talking about them to reduce meltdowns
  • A bonus section dedicated to helping children over 5. With one audiobook, you can support your child from birth to 10 years old.

As early interaction is so important, you are probably thinking that you don’t have the qualifications to make a difference. This is not true! You know your child better than anyone else and with the knowledge and experience in this audiobook, you are more than qualified.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Speech Therapy made easy

I work with OT's and aba therapists and this book has been a superb guide for all of us to help us understand the workings of a Speech therapist who we often collaborate with. From professionals that work with kiddos that are in therapy, this book is an excellent resource for parents/carers/teachers that have children struggling with speech. The games are interactive and well explained. This is a book I will be coming back to often.

Great Resource

This book is practical and interactive at the same time. What more than games to educate kids on realistic abilities that will benefit them in the long run? Nice work by the author to highlight language development skills and stories to help with conveying the educative message.

Excellent resource for parents

This is a well-written book by a speech and language therapist whose experience shines through. She understands the fear that parents go through when they discover their child is not articulating like their peers. She gently reminds parents that milestones are just a guideline. This audiobook includes fun and practical activities you can do with your child to make a difference. It’s helpful that the information is broken down by specific age group. I especially enjoyed the section with social stories – stories to help children of all ages prepare for situations that they have little to no experience of. This is a very comprehensive guide. Highly recommend.

I loved going through the games in this book with my daughter she has a speech impediment and is very shy so going to therapy wasnt working. Doing these games at home both strengthened our bond and helped her improve her speech! recommend over and over.

Great book for speech therapy!

It's difficult for a parent to know whether or not their child is developing normally. However, after you've established where they stand in terms of their speech, it's critical to start to work on helping them improve it. This, paired with the assistance of a professional, has shown to be really beneficial. There are many workouts included that have previously proven to be beneficial.

Great book

I did not finish the book yet and not applied yet all the tips and exercises, but from what I did it help, it takes time and consistency to have a result! I hope we will have great results in 3/6 months

Excellent Resource for Parents

This book provided me with so many strategies and insights to help me navigate communicating with my toddler. It was a friendly reminder for me, a first time parent, to stay calm and not to stress out about a toddler that isn't talking yet. The checklist for each age group were helpful as well. Overall a great resource for parents looking for a helpful guide to navigating and helping your Childs speech.

Great techniques suggested

I have a 28 months old and the techniques suggested here are great! I do let him brush my hair now, for a better eye and hand coordination. Very useful PDF too, to go over the check list!

Nice resource to have for young kids

My own child and several of my nieces had difficulty with speech. It really does some seem like a lot of parents are dealing with this problem. This guide is a really good resource, like a dictionary of activities for children to aid their development. you can just refer to it if you run out of ideas. I love that the author is a qualified speech therapist who knows what they're talking about.

❤️❤️❤️

I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I haven’t been a new mom for quite a while now and my first child there was never books like this.

My newest babe is a year now and so excited to start working on these ideas, tips, tricks and processes to help her grow and be the best she can be!

Also really liked that it had the accompanying PDF so I could download and highlight things I specifically wanted to try!

Great Speech Therapy Ideas for Toddlers

Plenty of excellent ideas can be found in this book on Speech Therapy for Kids.

I could have used this book to help me with my youngest child.

At the age of three, when she started talking, she used the very last syllable of every word she uttered.

Being a good parent is not easy, but this book will help you in many ways to teach your children through speech and make it easy for you as a parent also.
