Using Recasts with Toddlers & Preschoolers - At SpeechScience.org

Speech Science


As a pediatric speech-language pathologist and Clinical Instructor, I'm always on the hunt for new resources that provide high-quality, accessible information about speech and language therapy. I recently found a new such resource: SpeechScience. The SLPeeps over at SpeechScience are striving to create a website that is full of "accessible, evidence-based information intended to be available to everyone: Clinicians, educators, parents, and anyone else with the need to learn more about communication sciences and disorders."  If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you'll immediately recognize that this jives really well with the goal of ChildTalk: to provide high-quality information about speech and language in a readable way.  Good stuff! 

I like SpeechScience's mission so much that I'll be contributing blog posts about pediatric speech & language and family-centered care. You can find my first blog post there right now. It's all about the use of recasts with toddlers and preschoolers - when to use recasts, for what purpose, how often, and with whom.  You can access it here: 
The Use of Recasts with Toddlers and Preschoolers.  Happy Reading!
