Beyond Baby Talk
When will my infant speak? What should my child's first words be? Kenn Apel and Julie Masterson answer these questions (and many more) while covering the stages of speech and language development for infants, babies, toddlers and preschoolers; in essence, the first years of a child's life.
"They Considered Holding Him Back..." Early Intervention
Focuses on some of the early indicators of speech, language, and hearing problems in children. Imagine knowing every answer to every question, but being too afraid to speak for fear of sounding "different." Or not understanding what information the teacher is giving or asking from you. Speech, language and hearing problems can be significant roadblocks to a student's education. This poster stresses the importance of the early intervention services an SLP can provide.
"Children with Speech, Language, and Hearing Problems Often Stand Out in Class" Early Intervention
Focuses on some of the early indicators of speech, language, and hearing problems in children. A student may seem withdrawn or uninterested; may have problems with learning and reading; and may have difficulty making friends. This poster stresses the importance of early intervention so that every "...child has the communication abilities to learn and keep up in class."
"Difference Between Learning a Sentence and Serving One" Early Intervention
Focuses on what can happen to a child without early intervention by an SLP. As many as 84% of incarcerated youths have problems communicating, and 70% of adult prisoners score in the lowest literacy levels. This poster stresses the importance of an SLP's role in turning these statistics around so that children with communication disorders can go on to develop the learning and literacy skills needed to succeed in school and in life.
