Creating Verbal Routines for Late Talking Toddlers

ASHA CEU Course Creating Verbal Routines for Late Talking Toddlers

Creating Verbal Routines for Late Talking Toddlers 

ASHA course # 1001

Learning to talk during Verbal Routines is a critical, “in between” step for many late talkers. Creating Verbal Routines is designed to teach you how to develop and introduce verbal routines to toddlers with language delays and disorders. In this 68 minute video, I’ll explain what a verbal routine is and why this strategy is successful with ALL young children, including those with language delays, and provide lots of examples for developing and using your own verbal routines. Finally, you’ll see approximately 30 minutes of therapy video clips when I’ve used verbal routines in speech therapy sessions with toddlers and young preschoolers. 


ASHA CEUs and Other CE Credit

A Course Handout will be provided with the purchase of the course. It’s an 8 page PDF written in a “hand out” format and can be shared with parents as a part of your caregiver education plan. If you’re a parent, you’ll have written instructions in your hands to help you remember what you’re supposed to be doing for your activities at home.
