My Students

I provide speech-language service to infants and toddlers (birth - 3yrs) in their home environments within Baltimore City. Many of my students are experiencing difficulties communicating due to delays in using words, socializing, or understanding verbal information. My students are working through communication challenges at such young ages because of disabilities such as hearing loss and autism.

As I enter families' homes to model language interactions and train parents, there are few books and toys available for the children.

Pretend play and engaging in books is crucial to the language development in infants and toddlers.

My Project

The selected books and cause& effect toys will help my infant and toddler students develop their speech-language skills.

These "Llama Llama" and early concept books provide opportunities for my students to practice animal and environmental sounds.

They also learn pre-literacy skills including holding books, turning pages, recognizing letters/words, and vocabulary.

The cause & effect toys provide play opportunities for the infants and toddlers that I provide services for while learning to communicate. These toys promote requesting (e.g., more, again, help) and giving commands (e.g., put in, take out, push it, give me).

There are many communication opportunities while engaging with books and cause & effect toys.
