ARE YOU FRUSTRATED TRYING TO TEACH YOUR TODDLER TO UNDERSTAND WORDS? DOES HE IGNORE YOU WHILE OTHER CHILDREN HIS AGE ARE INTERACTING WITH OTHERS AND EVEN BEGINNING TO TALK?
Maybe everyone around you, even your pediatrician, is telling you that everything’s fine. But you can’t get past that nagging feeling that something’s not quite right.
You know he should be doing more by now, but how can you help him? Everything you’re trying isn’t working.
As a parent, there’s nothing more frustrating than watching your toddler not be able to do things as well as other children his own age. While friends’ and relatives’ toddlers are showing off the new tricks they’ve learned, your child continues to be in his own little world, locked away from others when they try to talk to him.
DOES YOUR CHILD SEEM TO TUNE YOU OUT? DOES HE HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME OBEYING YOUR COMMANDS?
You can’t help but feeling embarrassed, or jealous, or even angry.
Why YOUR child? Why does it have to be so hard for him and for YOU?
IS YOUR CHILD A LATE TALKER TOO?
You just want him to be able to tell you what she wants, or even to be able to call you ”Mama,” or whisper back, “I love you too.”
The truth is….a child must understand words before we expect him to talk, and certainly before we expect him to obey.
Many times late talking is also due to underlying difficulty comprehending language. He can’t talk yet because words don’t mean anything to him yet.
A child must understand words before he begins to use those words to communicate.
ARE YOU DISCOURAGED WHEN YOU TRY TO DISCIPLINE YOUR YOUNG CHILD? IS SHE DIFFICULT TO HANDLE?
Are you becoming agitated and irritable when your child won’t listen? When you’re out, are others noticing her behavior?
Many times a child is called “stubborn” or “bad,” when there IS a real problem. Many teachers or even parents label a young child as “difficult” or as a behavior problem when the real problem is, he doesn’t understand and process language as well as other children his age.
This happens often when children achieve their milestones on the late end of the expected developmental ranges. And this is always true for kids who have been diagnosed with developmental delays and other issues such as autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, or who were premature.
Because of these delays, whether mild or severe, all of these children have trouble understanding what’s expected of them.
This makes it even more difficult to know how to discipline them or even what’s appropriate to try.
The good news is ….
There are lots of very practical ways to work on these skills at home.
You can learn simple, but effective strategies for improving the way a child understands language so that he can begin to obey.
There’s finally a DVD series that will teach you EXACTLY how to help your child learn to understand your words and learn to obey your instructions.
It’s called Teach Me To Listen and Obey, and it was developed by Laura Mize, pediatric speech-language pathologist and author of the website teachmetotalk.com.
There’s so much information that it’s been split it into a 2 part DVD series to address specific developmental phases and disciplinary approaches for both toddlers and preschoolers.
Both DVDs focus on helping parents, and even professionals, teach receptive language skills, or improving the way a child understands and comprehends language.
Teach Me To Listen and Obey takes the camera inside real therapy sessions with children just like yours. Whatever stage you child is at - whether you’re just wondering if there’s a problem and want to try to address it at home, or if you’ve already seen a professional and your child has been diagnosed with a developmental issue - you’ll see all kinds of children with various abilities and at different stages.

Read what a few parents and professionals who previewed the project during the editing process said:
“ I loved your first DVD Teach Me To Talk, but I think I enjoyed Teach Me To Listen and Obey even more! The way you presented the information made it very easy to understand. My child does have some difficulty understanding what’s said to him, but I never thought it could be the reason he doesn’t seem to listen to me. Thank you for letting me watch this because now I know how to help him better. ”
“The discipline information alone would be worth the money to buy the whole set.”
“As a father, I want my son to mind me. Until I watched your video I didn’t understand that he didn’t understand. Thank you for showing me that.”
“This is a great DVD set for teaching parents how to view receptive language delays. I’m a developmental therapist, and I learned several new things that I will be thinking about as I work with my clients.”
“This is the BEST DVD I’ve ever seen for teaching a parent how to work on receptive language at home.”
Another parent’s comments:
Four months ago I noticed my daughter didn’t talk as well as other childrend her age. After visiting our local school district for a speech eval, I was sent home and told she was fine and would have a “word burst” any day now. I wasn’t comfortable with the “wait and see” idea, so I turned to the internet and THANKFULLY found your website. From your site alone, I was able to educate myself and understand my daughter’s problem was a language issue, and she was way over due for her “word burst.” It prompted me to get an assessment with a private SLP, and we then found she does have a moderate expressive language delay that is not going to correct itself!
Even though my daughter scored normally on her receptive language test, I saw the signs you listed that may still point to a receptive language issue, specifically not being able to answer simple questions or follow simple commands, using lots of jargon, etc. I deceided to get Teach Me to Listen and Obey 2 to get some ideas to work with her at home. As expected, it gave me many great game ideas. Infact, my daughter found your voice so engaging, she kept coming into the room to view the video with me. I could tell she really wanted to play the games! But perhaps the most valuable thing your video taught me was that raising a child with a language delay is different and it’s hard! My daughter and I are both frustrated all the time, so it’s my job to keep it together and to fill in the communication gaps. I needed to be reminded of that, and I am a better parent today because of it. Thank you so much for your wonderful website and videos. Thank you, thank you!
Use the following guidelines to determine which DVD is most appropriate for your child:
Teach Me To Listen and Obey 1 is for parents of a child who:
- Can’t follow simple directions
- Doesn’t consistently respond to his or her name
- Won’t participate in simple games or play with an adult
- Needs help understanding very basic concepts like learning the names of familiar objects and people, pointing to body parts, or completing early requests such as, “Wave bye-bye,” or “Give me a kiss.”
- Demonstrates developmental and receptive language skills below the 24 month level
Even if you feel your child is older and past the “baby” stage, if he is not consistently following simple directions or paying attention when you talk to him, you need to begin here.
In Teach Me To Listen and Obey 1, you’ll learn what things your child must do first so that he can begin to understand words. You’ll also learn the background information you need to decide if there’s a real problem. This includes the definition of receptive language, the early signs and symptoms of a receptive language disorder, and you’ll see a review the basic receptive language milestones for toddlers and preschool children between 1 and 4.
You’ll learn 3 simple ways to cue your child, and you’ll be able to use these techniques during play and during your daily routines at home to provide a strong foundation for comprehension and communication skills.
Teach Me To Listen and Obey 2 is for parents of a child who:
- Gets “lost” when trying to follow more complicated commands
- Needs help expanding his vocabulary to understand many different kinds of words
- May understand basic directions, but won’t follow through with what you’ve asked her to do
- Has reached a developmental and receptive language age-equivalency of at least 24 months, but is still behind his peers who are 2, 3, or 4
- Is ready to move on to higher-level language skills, but you’re not sure how to teach these or you don’t know what should come next
During Teach Me To Listen and Obey 2 you’ll see demonstrations of teaching children how to understand the major language comprehension milestones for children ages 2 to 4. This includes learning to understand verbs, prepositions, adjectives, pronouns, and other concepts such as size, categories, parts of an object, object functions, quantity, and making inferences.
You’ll also find out what’s NOT important to teach your child at this phase of language development so that you can use your time efficiently and wisely.
You’ll learn how to design “games” for teaching young children to listen and follow directions, and you’ll get ideas for involving siblings at home. Here’s an example……….
