Do you feel guilty because you don't get to see your kids much during the week? Use these strategies to overcome your guilt and build a solid bond with your kids.

by Sarah Argenal

Episode Summary: 

Carrie Clark is a speech-language pathologist who works full-time at home on her website for parents and others who work with children with speech and language delays. She provides resources and step-by-step guides for how to treat various communication problems.

Today’s show is all about helping our kids with their speech and language development.  We talk a lot about what’s normal, but we also chat about what to do if your child is or seems to be delayed in their speech.  Carrie is so helpful in breaking down what we should know as parents when it comes to helping our kids with both their pre-verbal and verbal communication.

What You’ll Learn in This Episode: 

  • The general guidelines and timeframes for “normal” speech and language development.
  • Red flags and warning signs of delayed speech to keep an eye out for.
  • What to do if you suspect your child has speech delays.
  • Tips for helping your child with their natural language development, or ways to improve their speech at home if there’s a delay.
