#386 Prelinguistic Skill #1 Teach a Child to Respond and Interact with Objects Course Description

Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP, in this ASHA CEU Course #386 Prelinguistic Skill #1 Teach a Child to Respond and Interact, as she explains the 11 prelinguistic skills all toddlers master before words emerge. This is show #2 in this series. Watch #385 for background and a brief explanation of the 11 skills. In this show, we’re discussing more background and then explaining in detail Skill #1 RESPONDS AND INTERACTS WITH THINGS IN THE ENVIRONMENT. Remember that this skill refers to a child’s ability to react to sensory information – or things he can see, hear, touch, hold, and manipulate. The kinds of skills we want to facilitate at this phase are alerting, looking, calming, attending, reaching, grasping, holding, mouthing, waving objects, banging, and then…REPEAT!

Here’s where we should begin to work with toddlers with severe developmental disabilities and not on teaching them to talk. Why? Because a child who can’t do these kinds of things consistently, chiefly alert, react, and interact with things in his or her environment, is not developmentally ready to learn to understand and use words.

Learning Objectives
  1. Define prelinguistic skills.
  2. Explain why therapy begins at this point for babies and toddlers with significant developmental delays.
  3. Name at least 3 toys and activities recommended for babies and toddlers in this developmental phase
