This is the question I answer almost weekly. Both on my job (I work on Mon and on Fri from 8:00 – 3:00, it’s a nice gig for a mommy!), and from friends and acquaintances who know I am a speech therapist.
I found this great article today that addresses this question, and the author nicely articulates all the things I encourage parents to try.
Talking “more” is not the problem around our house. Dylan and Lauryn both talk plenty, it’s just that half the time, half the listeners can’t quite understand what they’re saying. Humbling for this SLP. We’re working on it!
