BHSM Stories: Baltimore County Public Schools
We have developed a partnership with the Baltimore County
Public Libraries. Each branch has a weekly story time for
children aged 2—5. During the month of May, school SLPs volunteer
to do presentations at each branch for one of these story times.
The SLPs read aloud books and demonstrate, by example, how
parents can develop language skills when reading aloud to their
children at home. After the story time with the children, we are
available to answer any questions or address concerns about
We also provide several handouts about the following topics:
early speech/language development, practical suggestions for
language enriching activities at home, and how to access help if
needed. This is our 4th year and the project is going strong!
