One of the most important responsibilities a speech-language pathologist has is to help families access the tools they need to support their child’s growing language skills at home. Over the years I have developed an extensive “go-to” list of free resources that I recommend to families and that I use personally as a parent.

Whether your child’s language skills are developing typically or they are in need of a little extra support, the resources listed below suggest books, toys, games, research and more to help you feel a little more confident that you are providing your child with their best start. No more searching the Internet endlessly. Just one-stop to make language learning come to life in your home.
