Listen now
Description
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com for this one hour audio/video podcast as we discuss the first piece of expressive language development... learning to imitate. Imitation is how little kids learn almost everything. They watch you and then do what you do or listen and then say what you say. Many very young children with autism (or red flags for autism) have lots of difficulty learning how to imitate and subsequently, how to talk. Imitation is the most important skill you will teach every child with autism who is not yet talking because a child's ability to imitate is directly related to his rate of progress for adding new words to his expressive vocabulary. Find out why imitation can be so hard for kids with autism and what to do to help toddlers and preschoolers with ASD begin to imitate in this episode of The Autism Podcast Series.
