In this video, I told you a little bit about social connection. This is where we’ll start because it is the cornerstone of your child’s speech and language development.
Here are your workbook tasks to do before you move on:
- Jot down your plan for getting speech therapy services for your child
- Make a list of your support network.

Contact your insurance provider to request a “developmental evaluation” from a speech-language pathologist or child psychologist.
- If you’re in the United States and your child is over or nearing the age of three, contact your local school district’s special education office and request a “developmental evaluation” from a speech-language pathologist or school psychologist.
- Visit the American-Speech Language Hearing Association website to find a speech therapist in your state. Some may accept insurance, and others will be private pay.
Once you’ve done that, let’s go on to the next video.
Sharing time: Introduce yourself
We’ve got a private Facebook group just for parents who are taking this course with me. This is a great way to learn from other parents’ experiences and get recommendations on what has worked for them that you can try with your own child.
Please join us on Facebook and take a moment to introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your child, and what brings you here to the course. We can’t wait to meet you!
