I'm scheduled to have him evaluated by the early intervention program, but I would really love to be able to do something with him at home. The problem is I can find very little information on what I can do with him at home to help his speech. All I find are the things I already do - read books, sing songs, fingerplays, talk, talk, talk. He watches 1 signing time DVD/day and knows about 100 signs. We listen to songs at naptime and audio books at bedtime (his older sister's). He has been fully immersed in language since birth. Every time he nursed, I read I book to his sister (and you know how long a newborn can nurse).
Does anyone know of a book or resource that would give me more information on what I can do? Why can't I find anything that a therepist does? It seems like a great secret. My boy is very shy and unlikely to particpate in therapy until he has been there a dozen times or so. For his age, they do one-on-one play at your home. I'm with him all day and think the therapy would be most effective if came from the person that knows and understands him the most.
Sorry I got so long-winded. Thanks for any help you may have.
