Beyond Baby Talk

For 11 years, Beyond Baby Talk, has been the only book parents need to guide their children in learning effective communication skills – and now it is fully updated and revised. Authors Kenn Apel and Julie Masterson, experts in child language, take the mystery out of the developmental process with updated education research, simple milestones parents can look for and easy activities to build strong language skills. The subjects covered in Beyond Baby Talk are:

  • Enhancing a child’s literacy skills for improved spelling, reading and writing abilities.
  • Understanding and navigating how TV and texting may impact language development.
  • Recognizing signs of language and literacy progress problems – and knowing when to seek professional help.
  • Being aware of common language myths, fads and scams.

I was able to read an advanced copy and the best part about this whole book is that there is a section on multiples. Let’s face it, when it comes to anything with multiples, it’s just not the same as having a singleton. Additionally, I really enjoyed all of the sections on media and the influence that they have on our kiddos language development. It covers TV, texting and computer usage.

This book is such an amazing resource and should really be owned by every parent. There are so many great takeaways from this book, you’ll use it the entire first five years of your kiddos lives.

    Would love to have this to read!

  3. My twin (just turned 2 in July) boys seem to be developing very well with their language skills, but sometimes I think they rely on each other to “help” them when they don’t know something – how can I work with them individually to build them up seperately & not let their brother “help them out”.

  4. How strongly do passifers effect speech development ?

  5. I would love to read this book! I have 2year old boy/girl twins. My little guy has been in speech for the last 6 months and has made some progress but still not talking. His twin sister talks in sentences, says her ABCs, counts and is way advanced. I would love to be able to find out more ways to help my son!

  6. Would love to know how hearing one-sided media, i.e. tv/radio/phone calls, affects the way a young child learns to communicate with people. Often wonder when my daughter learns something new totally out of context
