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!

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!
