Toy lists!

I spend a lot of time talking about playing with whatever you have because anything can become a toy with the right mindset (with the exception of dangerous items clearly). However, the holidays are coming and family members will want gift ideas that don’t include sticks, spoons, or dirt…

To be fair my son asked for worms once and he was gifted a worm farm so….

Anyway….. language promoting toy ideas for 2020

Baby Doll

Both of my boys enjoy playing with this doll. We got this originally to help introduce our first child to the idea of a baby in the house but really it is just a great and versatile toy!

Another open ended toy that grows with them! Any type of block will do!

Play food sets are great for pretend play, following directions, and vocabulary growth!

These are just a few of our favorites that have stood the test of time (so far).

I am a speech-language pathologist and I specialize in early intervention. I obtained my Masters degree from Penn State University and my Doctorate Degree from Rocky Mountain University of Healthcare Professions. I have worked in a variety of setting but most of my experience is working with preschool aged children. I thought I knew so much about that age and younger until I had my own children! I'm a proud mother of two wonderful boys and while they can be a challenge at times, they help me develop new skills and new ways to approach language development in a functional and motivating way I would never have truly grasped without them. I started this blog in an effort to share and support others while their little ones are growing and learning and also to support my fellow SLPs. I hope you find my posts helpful. My goal is to provide practical ideas and suggestions because I know first hand that setting out to do anything that isn't functional or motivating for you and your children won't give you the results or satisfaction we all hope to obtain while working with our little ones.
