#407 Imitation Skills in Toddlers and Preschoolers with ASD
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com for this one hour audio/video podcast as we discuss the first piece of expressive language development... learning to imitate. Imitation is how little kids learn almost everything. They watch you and then do what you do or listen and then say what you say. Many very young children with autism (or red flags for autism) have lots of difficulty learning how to imitate and subsequently, how to talk. Imitation is the most important skill you will teach every child with autism who is not yet talking because a child's ability to imitate is directly related to his rate of progress for adding new words to his expressive vocabulary. Find out why imitation can be so hard for kids with autism and what to do to help toddlers and preschoolers with ASD begin to imitate in this episode of The Autism Podcast Series.

#405 Play Skills in Toddlers with Autism... The Autism Podcast Series
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com for this podcast for CE credit for therapists as we differences in play skills for very young children with autism or red flags for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Do you recognize these behaviors in the young children you treat? 1. A child’s play skills are extremely delayed, meaning he plays much like a younger baby would play—mouthing, looking at, dropping, throwing, and holding toys—but not using familiar toys as they are intended. 2. A child’s interest in toys is restricted. He doesn’t seem to like toys. 3. A child doesn’t pay attention to toys for very long. 4. A child clearly prefers objects to people, but she doesn’t seem to know how to play with toys. 5. A child plays with toys in unexpected or repetitive ways. For example, he spins wheels on a train or lines them up, but he does not play with the train in other ways. 6. A toddler is not showing any signs of pretending while playing. 7. There’s been little progress during therapy due to poor attention or interest with toys. If you answered yes to these questions, a child you're working with has difficulty with learning to play with toys. Kids who don't play miss hundreds of opportunities each day to learn language and interact with peers. Research also tells us that toddlers with ASD who have better play skills are much more likely to have better language skills as preschoolers and throughout childhood. When we prioritize play, we begin to see changes in other areas of communication too! See show #405 at teachmetotalk.com for details!
RN mom of 14 month old
I am so grateful for Laura Mize and her excellent FREE materials- podcasts and videos. I have a healthcare background, but the information is accessible for SLPs and “laypeople” alike. I have searched and not found anything close to this treasure trove of resources. I have been listening to this podcast and implementing suggestions for 6 weeks, and my baby has progressed significantly. We have also started private speech therapy while waiting for our early intervention evaluation, which has been very expensive. Having Laura’s resources has helped much more than anything else. I’m considering purchasing her therapy manual from her website, since taking notes while listening can be cumbersome. Thank you Laura for spending so much time to help parents like me!
I love Leslie Lindsay’s testimony on her daughter and apraxia!
Informative and interesting
As a (non pediatric) SLP and mom to a later talking toddler, this podcast has been incredibly helpful. I would understand and benefit from listening even if I were not an SLP. I agree with previous reviewers that it can be difficult to find the recent episodes. I don’t have this with other podcasts I listen to. That’s just a small suggestion though - love this podcast!
