#351 More Expressive Strategies

This week’s show is a continuation from show #350 when we talked about the imitation hierarchy I use to address expressive language delays in toddlers.

Listen for some fantastic strategies!!

BEFORE Strategies

Also – structured teaching to improve attention, participation, and task completion – demonstrated in my course Is It Autism?
