Speech Therapy for Toddlers.

Speech includes lots of imitation, and Ellie usually copies everything Ms. Lisa does - as soon as Lisa leaves our house.  Yesterday, Ellie wanted to imitate Lisa's actions throughout the session, or at least, for the first 40 minutes or so.

Then, she went to the stairs, stood up holding the baby gate, and yelled.  "UP!"  When that didn't work, she tried telling Lisa, "Bye bye."

We still love you Lisa, even if Ellie tries to kick you out!

One of my favorite "Copy Ms. Lisa Stories" comes from a session a few months ago.  Lisa was making Ellie's doll stack blocks.  Of course, doll has short arms, so to lift the blocks, doll had them up near her face.  For the next two weeks, Ellie would pick up a block, hold it up to her face, and bend her entire body forward to stack.  I'm sad I never caught it on video.

I hope you all have a great week.  Second birthday preparations are in full effect over here, along with scheduling annual appointments for various follow-ups and beginning Ellie's assessment process for school-based special education and related services.

  1. Too cute! Okay, you've got one *busy* little girl... Looking forward to celebrating her birthday with you guys!

  2. Love this! Glad chatty Kathy has been wanting to play so consistently lately! I hope PT Megan saw those little steps! :)

  3. Yay for social referencing! Even if it does cause that cutie pie to stack blocks funny!

    I used to play special needs soccer with a little guy, and I'd walk up and say "Are you ready to play soccer?" and he'd go "No Thank you! Bye bye!"

  4. Speech therapy do magical things not only for those kids who suffer from language difficulty or difficulty in understanding words infect it also beneficial for kids who have just started to speak. Usually, parents are not able to judge this problem at early stage. So, speech therapy will be helpful for your kid to learn new words in an attractive way. Cluas experts always suggest parents to train kids as soon as they start taking interest in such activities and understanding words. The more they learn, more will be the grasping power.
