I happen to be a Speech-Language Pathologist (S-LP) who works with the preschool population. With the addition of my beautiful baby boy to my family, I’ve come across a ton of great books and I can’t help but think of them in terms of supporting communication goals. I will be sharing some books which can be used to target speech sounds or language structures – look for the tag “SLP Recommends” and enjoy!
I’ll be starting with board books and hope to post a “Toddler Tuesday” book each week.
Some handy links if you’re interested in learning more about early literacy skills:
- Libraries are a great resource for reading! Toronto Public Library has some GREAT information.
- The Hanen Centre is an amazing resource for all sorts of info about early language and literacy development. They have lots of parent-friendly resources.
- Interested in attending a one-day conference about early literacy? GrandviewKids hosts, in partnership with other agencies in the Durham Region, the Spring Into Literacy Conference. Info at GrandviewKids .
