Description
If a child loves books, it’s not hard for parents to figure out how to use books to teach them to understand and use words. But for toddlers with language delays and other young children who learn differently, it may not be so easy! Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com for this one-hour audio/video podcast episode as she explains how to make books better for toddlers with language delays in part one of this two part series.
