"Growing up in a Pandemic" was written to answer all of the questions that many parents around the globe are asking, and much more. This book will discuss the personal experience of a speech language pathologist working out in the field pre- and post-pandemic, and the concerns she now sees for the future of our children. She will also explain the "when", 'why", and "how" children learn to communicate, as well as provide you with the tools to help you learn how to increase your child's communication at home. The advice and strategies she gives in this book are the same strategies she gives to the clients and families she works with. So think of this book as your own personal speech therapist right at the palm of your hand.
Whether you work with children or have children of your own, this book is for you. We will dive deep into the effects of the pandemic on speech and language development, especially for our birth to three year old population. The best part? It is written in an easy to read format so that you do not need to be a speech pathologist to understand it.
Everyone should have a voice, especially our young ones. Many of the tantrums we see in young children are caused by their inability to effectively communicate their needs. With the tools provided in this book, you will learn how to help your child communicate effectively, reduce tantrums, and remove the barriers that are causing delays in your child's speech.
