An essential guide to language development— from babbling to first words to full sentences— plus early signs of anxiety, autism, or ADHD
The stress, anxiety, and isolation of the past few years have led to a crisis among young children. Many toddlers who had been chatting away stopped altogether while others never developed language skills at all. Speech and language therapist Nicola Lathey and journalist Tracey Blake are on a mission to get your child back on track—with strategies tailored to specific needs:
What to Do When Your Child Isn’t Talking
- What if your baby isn’t babbling in year one?
- What if your toddler isn’t saying their first words in year two?
- What if your child isn’t talking in sentences like their peers in year three?
answers parents’ burning questions about their child’s development and provides expert strategies to put this advice into practice. With each chapter devoted to a language setback and solution, this book provides practical advice and fun games for parents to steer their children back on track and set them up for success at school and in life.
