Parenting Tip
Reading for Speech: Two Manhattan speech pathologists, Lavinia Pereira and Michelle Solomon, have created a series of adorable, accessible children's books aimed at helping very young children develop their speech skills. The books, which have names like, "Oh! A Bubble..." and "Block On Top" would be fun and helpful to share with any child (roughly 16 months and up) as he or she takes on the challenges of pronunciation--but the series would be especially helpful, of course, for children with speech delays, motor speech disorders, autism, cerebral palsy, and other illnesses that impact speech. Pereira and Solomon have called their wonderful project "The First Sound Series," and they have eight books and counting. For more info, see
