Toys Worth Talkin’ For

Parents often ask me what toys they should buy their kid for their birthday or Christmas that build speech and language. The best toys usually don’t have batteries, and can be played with in lots of different ways. They also need to be fun for a wide age group, so it won’t be a toy they play with for a week and forget about. Here are some of my speech therapy must have toys! These are affiliate links, by the way 🙂

Up first is the this adorable Critter Clinic! A toy that spans ages, and is great for requesting, labeling, spatial locations, verbs, and animal noises. Each door is unlocked with a corresponding key, and vet tools are available to help the sick animals.

Will My Child Stop Stuttering?

Stuttering is a complex speech disorder. Stuttering can rotate through periods of low or no stuttering at all to more severe episodes of stuttering.  Some parents hesitate to intervene because they see the stutter getting better and worse over and over again, and hope that the “better” part of the cycle will stick.

Treatment of stuttering varies depending on the age of the child. Today, lets address stuttering in 3-6 year old children.

How Can I Help My Child Talk?

No matter what stage of development your child is in, there are many things you can do to help your child learn language!

Angie is amazing at what she does! My son is 7 years old and has come so far with Angie in just a few short months. We feel so lucky to have found her!

As a brand new mother I had a lot of fears when my son was behind in his speech. Angie put me at ease and I'm so grateful for that. She worked with my son, but most importantly she taught me and gave me tools to assist him.

Finding Speech Works was such a blessing! I was at a loss of what to do to help my son improve his many speech problems. I am amazed at the progress my son made in a year working with Angie.
Rachel Rodgers
My sweet little boy was behind in speech and it broke my heart. We had tried multiple people to help him and nothing was clicking. I had tried everything to try and work with him at home and he would just shut down. Then we started going to Angie and things changed!!! He was picking up sounds he had never been able to make, he was trying his hardest to finish words and not leave syllables out, and he was gaining confidence in social situations. Angie has a real talent of engaging kids in fun activities and they don’t even know they are working on their speech. My son couldn’t wait to go to speech and would wait for Tuesday’s to roll around so he could go see his friend. I can’t say enough good things about Angie and I would recommend her to everyone. She truly loves the kids she works with and builds a bond with them. We love Angie and credit our sons success and love for learning and going to speech to angie.
