Designing an effective speech therapy program for toddlers and preschoolers can be a challenge, especially when receptive language skills are strong, but speech skills are not progressing. Have you ever sat through an entire speech therapy session in which the child didn’t utter a sound? How do SLPs respond when the child has no verbal imitation skills and remains silent in speech therapy week after week? What steps should SLPs take when traditional play-based therapy isn’t effective in bringing about oral language skills? This course will provide a blueprint of strategies and goals for getting started with the minimally verbal young child.
- Summarize the two primary goals when working with minimally verbal young children.
- Explain the rationale for using a motor-planning approach in speech therapy with minimally verbal toddlers and preschoolers.
- List 5 evidence-based treatment strategies for supporting speech development in minimally verbal young children.
