"My Toddler Talks is a very accessible and readable handbook that describes tips and play strategies that caregivers can easily implement in their daily interactions with their little ones. The book focuses on play routines, but the tips, modeling techniques and strategies can be incorporated into any daily interaction with a little practice. The tips and "do not list" are perfect for parents, childcare providers, and others who are looking for simple guidance on what they can do right now to positively affect a toddler's language development."
-Dana Childress, M.Ed.

From the Author

Why did I write My Toddler Talks? To help parents and professionals get their toddlers talking! When I first began treating toddlers who were delayed with their speech development, I struggled to find easy to understand, step-by-step guides for my parents to read. Collecting information from various resources was very cumbersome and trying -even then, I couldn't find practical and hands-on resources. So, I decided to write a workbook for my parents! My Toddler Talks is the culmination of several years of analysis of current research and work experience. I have completed all the play routines, performed all the techniques and strategies and continue to implement play routines and train current clients at my private practice Scanlon Speech Therapy, LLC.

I was skeptical at first but Midnighty really came through. They answered all my questions and made the whole experience a plesant one.
