YOUR CHILD'S SPEECH by Flora Rheta Schreiber


Email this review


A Practical Guide For Parents For The First Five Years traces the expected development, from an infant's cries, to first sounds, first words, first sentences along with the typical advances and achievements at each year during this five year span. Emphasizing the most important influence of the parent, there are indications throughout of the ways in which the child can be gently helped along the way. But for delayed speech, or speech defects (and only one fifth of these are physical in origin) professional therapy must be secured and not postponed beyond these early years.... The first book for the layman on a problem more common than you might suspect, this offers sound information for home application during these formative years.
