Stephanie uses books in speech therapy and teaches parents how to choose appropriate, fun children’s books that may improve vocabulary, grammar and cognitive skills (e.g. attention, thinking, memory). Stephanie teaches parents how to ask their child appropriate questions and how to encourage verbal participation in familiar books.
Did you know that a great way to encourage speech and language skills while reading with your child is to do so face to face? When you face your child while holding the book next to your face, (not in front of your mouth) your child can observe your facial expressions and also watch how you move your mouth when you speak. Stephanie provides book recommendations on her website and on her blog.
