“Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Kate” for Feb. 5, 2009

Join Kate and me this week for Teach Me To Talk with Laura and Kate on Thursday, February 5 at 6:00 pm Eastern time to finish the topic we started last Thursday.

This week we’ll continue to discuss EXACTLY how to target language at home in your daily routines. Listen as Kate and I finish walking you through typical activities. This week we’ll talk about ideas like using language during community outings – playing outside and going to the grocery store. We’ll also finish ideas for all of the those “little” activities we all do in a day. Adding new ideas to teach your toddler to understand and use words during these “extra” times will add up to a whole lot more language-learning in the course of the week.

If we have time, we’ll also discuss ideas for helping your non-verbal child learn how to begin to imitate sounds in play. Don’t miss this if you have a very quiet toddler!!!

I’ll also give you the name of a great website one of my client’s moms told me about for some early computer games, particularly recommended for kids who are using assistive technology.

Teaching language doesn’t have to be a separate activity that you set aside time for. You can work on learning language during virtually EVERY waking hour for you and your child at home. All it takes are some new ideas and a little commitment on your part! Join us to see what a difference you can make!

Please call us with your questions or comments. Our call-in number is 1-718-766-4332. We’d love to hear from you!

    On tonight’s show we were so happy to talk with Teri Kaminski-Peterson, a speech-language pathologist who has just published a new book for parents called The Big Book of Exclamations. She describes the book as “a fun, educational book designed to promote speech sound development, and imitation of gestures, sounds, and words.”

    I received my copy today. The art work is simply darling, and I highly recommend this for parents who might need help learning to use books with toddlers who don’t like to “read” AND for parents who need a “script” to work with their young children with speech-language delays. Teri includes lots of FUN ways to facilitate those first play words from non-verbal children. I will be using this book with my little friends and their families starting tomorrow!

    You can check out her website at TheBigBookofExclamations.com. She is also offering FREE SHIPPING to all readers and listeners from teachmetotalk.com if you e-mail her and mention that you read or heard about the book from here.
