“Late talkers” make up 15% of the toddler population. The language characteristics of the late talkers are not reflective of typical language development in the areas of word learning, phonology, morphology/syntax, and social skills. Dr. Michelle MacRoy-Higgins discusses why early intervention is important to provide speech and language services to late talkers.
We plan on running social skills groups (2-4 children per group) this summer for children of all ages: Tuesdays between 1-4pm; each group lasts approximately 1 hour. Your child’s social skills will be screened beforehand and we build groups based on the child’s needs. We are happy to run the group in your home!
?Mommy, the princesses won?t let me play with them.?
I pulled over and got into the back seat of the car with my 4-year old daughter.
?What do you mean?? I desperately asked her, trying to conceal the panic in my voice . . .
My poor girl, a fan of the Star Wars films, found herself in the nether-region of such ?gender play? and was effectively banished by both Han Solo and Sleeping Beauty.
