Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com as she discusses a very common situation SLPs and other therapists find themselves in with toddlers. Read her original question here and listen for my ideas for what I use when this happens! I work a lot with children under 3 (ASD& late talkers). I keep running into the same problem. I start with Hanen and parent education regarding same. Parents generally like the social interaction it can bring. Then I work on imitation skills with toy's or motor movements. I also work on task completion. AFTER this I get stuck. Parents want therapy weekly/ every second week. Kids are often saying a few words, but we seem to be doing the same things going nowhere. During Hanen kids play with same toys often silent despite my efforts (playing own agenda). Kids won't imitate words and parents are frustrated as they have heard their child say the word in the past. Usually lack of motivators and parent reluctance rules out PECS. I would be so grateful for any advice or product recommendations for this dilemma. I am beginning to lose faith at this stage. http://teachmetotalk.com/2018/01/24/326-help-im-stuck-kinds-kids/
