Welcome to teachmetotalk.com!
If this is your first visit, I’d like to tell you how I recommend “first timers” navigate the site because I have TONS of info on here that may not be apparent to you with your first click!
The site is organized in chronological order with the newest entries listed first here on the home page below the green banner.
However, lots of my best information is in the older articles and most of those articles are listed by category in the BLOG section. Click BLOG for a drop down list and choose the topic that most interests you. Once you’ve clicked on that section, you’ll see articles beginning with the most recent. I started this website in 2008 so there are hundreds of posts. You may want to scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit “next page” until you’re all the way back to the beginning of so that you can read those detailed “how to” posts first. I wrote lots and lots and lots of those kinds of posts in 2008 and 2009. The information is still EXCELLENT for parents as well as professionals. If you’re looking for in-depth information, start there!
Another category I’d like to tell you about is in VIDEOS. I have over 35 short (most are less than 10 to 15 minutes) videos here for free in my Therapy Tip of the Week series. You can also watch those on teachmetotalk.com’s youtube channel. Most of the videos are ideas for a particular toy or activity. I walk you through how to work with toddlers and young preschoolers with language delays and provide suggestions for goals for each issue you might be working on at home or in therapy.
In 2008 I started a podcast where I host a weekly show about topics related to late talking toddlers. I used to do the show with a co-host and you can still hear those, but now I have guests or it’s just me! The podcast has thousands of listeners, both parents of children with developmental delays and professionals who work with young children with language delays. Scroll through the podcasts until you find show titles that are most applicable for your situation. You may also want to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and listen from your smart phone or another device.
If you’re looking for resources, I’ve developed a whole line of DVD and therapy manuals to help parents and early intervention therapists. Click here for more information about those products.
