3 Books to Promote Speech

Hi, I’m Michelle Sisto. And I work for Achieve Beyond as a speech language pathologist. Our focus today is to give examples of three different books that are great to use in speech therapy. There are many strategies that are backed by evidence to support the speech and language development of children. Beyond the strategies, there are also specific books that are especially helpful when promoting early language development. First, we have Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See by Eric Carle. It’s a book that utilizes repetition and single words on pages.

The child can anticipate what’s coming next, as well as identifying pictures, focusing on concepts, colors, and animal sounds. The next book we have is From Head to Toe by Eric Carle. This book teaches a variety of concepts and focuses on attention. This book highlights following directions, verbs, body parts, and attention. Last we have Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. It’s a book that incorporates repetitive phrases and soothing melodic intonation. It works on labeling, describing, increasing vocabulary, and targeting two to three word phrases. Parents and caregivers can promote early language development beyond just play. Reading and literacy promotes speech and language by providing vocabulary and can foster a love for reading from a young age.
