FREE Teach Me To Talk the DVD on YouTube
We have some exciting news!
Today Johnny and I released our original DVD Teach Me To Talk on YouTube for FREE.
Our hope is that parents and professionals around the world will be able to use this practical information for working with infants and toddlers with language delays/disorders, particularly during this challenging season when most of our daily lives have been dramatically altered by this worldwide pandemic.
As a parent, I know you’re concerned that your child is not receiving therapy.
As a therapist, I know you’re concerned that “your children” are not receiving therapy.
While we can’t do anything about that, Johnny and I want to provide tools to help you as you work with your own child at home or continue to support families, whether that be through telehealth visits or sharing information via email, texts, and your own pages and websites.
If you haven’t seen the DVD, let me give you some details so that you can use and recommend it to families today.
The DVD teaches six simple strategies for training parents/caregivers of toddlers with language delays. Each strategy is introduced with “family-friendly” explanations and then demonstrated with multiple examples of sessions with toddlers during play-based activities. Basically, you’re sitting in on therapy.
In the absence of working directly with a child and his parents, watching a visual model of a new strategy can be a powerful teaching technique. I would know — because this is how I’ve taught thousands of parents (and therapists!) to do it since teachmetotalk.com’s launch 12 years ago!
Over the next several days, I’ll highlight each strategy for you and share how I use this information with families. For now, here’s a time listing of each section for reference:
Introduction: 0 – 2 Minutes
Playfulness: 2 – 17 Minutes
Sign Language: 17 – 31 Minutes
Modeling: 31 – 49 Minutes
Choices: 49 – 60 Minutes
