Speech and Language Handouts
Mary Brooks and Deedra Engmann-Hartung
Illustrated by Merrily Johnson
This is a collection of creatively illustrated tear-off sheets that clinicians, physicians, speech pathologists, paediatricians, and others can give to parents who are concerned about their child's speech and language development. It is newly revised, adding 6 new topics to the original 13, and now includes a Resource Guide to aid parents in the use of the worksheets. The series is packaged in 19 separate topics, with 25 identical double-sided sheets in each 15 x 23cm pad, so that professionals can tear off one sheet at a time and give them to parents who need minor help with a child’s speech development evaluation.
Nine of the handouts in the series list typical milestones in the speech and language development of children from the ages of 6 months to 6 years. Also listed are ways that parents can stimulate their infant's or child's speech and language. Six of the handouts are concerned with children's speech problems and how parents can help, such as How to Increase Your Child’s Vocabulary and If You Think Your Child Stutters. Three other handouts provide guidelines to (a) help determine if a child's hearing is normal and recommend ways to help the child listen better, and (b) prevent hearing loss. A final handout tells parents how best to read to their child and how to choose a good book.
