Listen to a PersonalMessage FromMary Lou Johnson

Mary Lou Johnson has helped hundreds of parents help their children learn to talk better in over 30 years of work as a speech-language pathologist.  Mary Lou is a respected clinician who produces positive results with children who have been diagnosed with speech and/or language problems – mild to profound.Mary Lou wants to share with you the techniques she has developed and shaped over 30 years at The Children’s Hospital, Denver, Colorado.  She received a Masters Degree from Washington University in St. Louis after studying at the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID).  At CID, hearing impaired and profoundly deaf children were taught to speak.  The specialized skills used at CID to help hard of hearing and deaf children work through their speech difficulties have been invaluable to Mary Lou when working with hearing children.  Some therapists seem to dabble in articulation therapy and have trouble moving children forward.  For Mary Lou, speech production therapy and children’s speech progress is her passion.Mary Lou also loves to help parents understand the differences between speech and language, help them figure out why their children aren’t speaking better, help children say words their parents have never heard them say before, and empower parents to help their children speak more in everyday activities.

You need an expert to give you information in straight language that you can understand and put to work.

You need specific ideas spelled out clearly…by a person who can teach you the ropes.

If you want to learn how to understand your child’s challenges in learning to talk, learn techniques to help your child talk more or more clearly, and use everyday activities to work with your child – Mary Lou will help you do it through this informative eBook!You will find Mary Lou’s writing style to be very clear and straight-forward, practical, and easy to understand.  And you will be pleasedand impressed by the wealth of information she provides.  It’s like a short course in pediatric speech-language pathology geared for parents.

Thank You, Mary Lou!        Many child development experts believe that if your child is not speaking bythe age of five, she may not achieve fully functional language skills.  Our daughterwould disagree and probably ask the question, “Did I talk when I was five?”  Kalenabegan using single words shortly before her 6th  birthday and was combining threeto four words by age 6½.  Today, at age 8, she amazes us with her continueddevelopment of spontaneous conversation skills.          To learn to speak, Kalena needed skilled therapists to guide her step-by-stepthrough communication development.  As her parents, we needed these advancedteachers to show us how to support and encourage our daughter through herchallenges.  We explored a combination of therapeutic approaches from a variety ofproviders including:  Floortime/Relationship Development Intervention, the HanenProgram, the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), augmentative speechdevices, and PROMPT techniques.  Mary Lou's combination of speech-languagetherapy techniques provided the tools for Kalena to finally overcome her apraxiaand begin to speak.        For Kalena, the disorganized world of Autism, with multiple sensory issues andsevere anxiety, complicated her interactions with everyone around her.  Imagineawakening without the ability to communicate your needs to others.  Everythingbecomes overwhelming and confusing, causing you to have so much anxiety--allyou can focus on is lining up toys against the wall.  Skilled speech therapists providedKalena with the help she needed to find her voice.  She has progressed from thebasics of learning to make eye contact and point to objects and picture symbols,to learning to read and type her language on a communication device, and finallydeveloping functional verbal communication skills.        We have been incredibly fortunate to have patient, knowledgeable teachers, includingMary Lou, work with our daughter, helping to ease her frustration and anxiety withbeing trapped in silence for several years.Arthur and Christine Biggs

This information is priceless...

...because communication is priceless.  We humans are driven to communicate.  When we can’t communicate, we are frustrated.  Have you ever had laryngitis and been unable to speak to order in a restaurant, talk on the phone, or conduct business?  How has that made you feel?Now think about your child who day after day can’t tell you what she or he wants, needs, feels, or is thinking about.  It’s no wonder some children start to hit, pinch, kick, bite, or simply give up.Even if your child might “outgrow” his or her current speech difficulties, how much better would it be if she or he spoke better one day sooner—one month sooner—or one or more years sooner.  I think you know the answer to that.And you are the answer to your child’s talking and communication needs—just as you are his or her Most Important Person to meet all needs.  Though you might lean on professionals to guide you, you need to be equipped with the information you need to make informed decisions and to help your child—every day.

From:    Mary Lou B. JohnsonAuthor:  How to Help Your Child Learn to Talk Better in Everyday ActivitiesDear Parent (or other concerned caregiver),If you want to stop worrying about your child’s lack of speech or your child’s unclear speech or limited use of language… then this might be the letter (and the book) you have been searching for.Here’s why:I’ll teach you how to help your child learn to talk better in everyday activities starting right now!You’re wondering why your child doesn’t talk better like other children his or her age, you worry that there must be something you did to cause your child to have difficulty --or you wonder if there was something you didn’t do. You keep getting advice that just doesn't seem right to you from well-meaning relatives (like your mother maybe…).Perhaps you don’t know where to turn, and you don’t know what to do. Or, perhaps you have been working with someone to try to help your child, and you still don’t really understand what is happening or what more you can do to help your child.  Maybe you are satisfied with the speech-language therapy your child is receiving and you are just looking for some additional information.Take a look at my Table of Contents to see if I have addressed the topics you are interested in.It will be my pleasure to assist you as you help your child.

Here are just some of the useful tips & techniques thisbook will teach you:

Why statements are better than questions to help you teach your child to speak better.               How to “filter” language so your child can break the language code more easily.How to use an Upside-Down Pyramid™ speaking method to help your child be able to repeat after you and learn to speak.How to handle “baby talk”.How to “highlight” language to make it more obvious to your child.           Why parents tend to ask their children questions (up to 80% of what they say to them) even though their children don't say many (or any) words.How to blend your language skill-building efforts into the usual activities you do every day like bathing, dressing, cooking, playing, going places and shopping.

More useful tips & techniques:

A clear explanation of the differences between language and speech.Why you want to think about sounds and not letters.Why your child’s birth order is not a factor in his/her speech difficulties.Why you are part of the solution – and not part of the problem.How to talk a book rather than read it to help your child learn to speak better.How to ignore well-meaning but unsolicited advice from relatives or friends and get your child the help he or she needs and deserves.How to find resources in your community to help your child.How to use the things you enjoy and are good at to help your child learn to speak better.

By the age of 2 ½ to 3 years a child typicallyunderstands approximately 500 words, expressesapproximately 200 words, combines 3 to 4 words in simple sentences, and is about 70% intelligible(understandable).  If your 2 ½ to 3 year old childisn’t using simple sentences, doesn’t have areasonable vocabulary to talk about things in herdaily life, and/or if she is hard to understandwhen she talks, this book is for you.
