Focusing on the natural bond that exists between parents and their children, this auditory habilitation tool consists of a book and DVD. This program has been developed for both parents and professionals to compliment their child’s habilitation program. The program follows the natural development of the child from birth to school age, and contains ideas and strategies for developing spoken language through listening.
This comprehensive developmental chart identifies milestones in listening, receptive (what your child understands) and expressive (what your says) language speech, cognition (thinking) and social communication. A practical and easy to use form supports you in tracking your child’s development over the long term.
