As the parent or caregiver of a child with a speech disorder, you try to make sure that he has all the speech therapy tools he needs to succeed. Speech therapy at-home exercises are also important, but when your child is bored to tears with flashcards, it’s time for some new ideas to keep your young audience engaged. Check out the following books on articulation to learn more about your child’s speech disorder and to get some fresh ideas for speech therapy for kids at home.
Conducting your own investigative work and research is vital – whether you’re an astrophysicist, a keynote speaker, or a parent of a child with a speech disorder or delay. In this digital age, “research” is often synonymous with “Google.” There are certainly a number of excellent digital resources about speech and communication issues, but don’t forget about print resources. Lace up your walking shoes and head over to your local library to look for some of the following notable reads. The more you learn about your child’s speech disorder and communication issues in general, the more you will be able to help him improve his skills. If your friendly neighborhood librarian can’t find these books on her shelves, ask if your library participates in an interlibrary loan program or check a local university library.
