August’s edition of the Pediatric Speech Therapy Newsletter takes a detailed look at Stages of Speech and Language Development.


Even before children say their first words and begin using conventional language, they develop precursors of language that parents can look for.  There are three important pre-language developments a child goes through: content, form, and use.  Each one addresses a specific way a child communicates and is important for language progression.


Our second story this month covers Building Flexibility Into Schedules During Speech Therapy.   Therapists must be flexible in a session in order to make the most gains with a child.   The use of visual schedules, as well as other helpful tools can be implemented to improve  a child’s therapy session. 


Here’s the full rundown for our August 2018 issue:

  • Building Flexibility into Schedules During Speech Therapy

  • Precursors of Language: Stages of Speech and Language Development

  • Ask a Therapist: Introducing Token Systems

  • App of the Month: Bitsboard Flashcards & Games
