Expert Advice for Parents of "Late Talkers" is Topic of Podcast
Expert advice for parents of "late talkers," or toddlers between 24 and 31 months who are experiencing language delays, is the topic of a new podcast (www.asha.org/podcast/) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
The podcast features Leslie Rescorla, PhD, as she discusses her latest research that will soon appear in an ASHA journal, and ASHA member and speech-language pathologist Ann Kummer, PhD.
Leslie Rescorla discusses her research, which follows late talking toddlers through the age of 17. Her research indicates that even though many of the subjects' language skills "caught up" with their peers, they did exhibit significantly weaker expressive language skills.
Ann Kumer discusses what a speech delay "looks like," what speech milestones should be met and when, when to start intervention, what type of intervention is needed and more.
The podcast featuring Drs. Rescorla and Kumer is part of ASHA's continuing podcast series, ASHA Network News, which highlights varying topics that pertain to human communication. Previous subjects have featured:
- Children's music star Justin Roberts who has joined ASHA's Listen to Your Buds campaign (www.listentoyourbuds.org), which promotes safe listening practices to young children;
