In Reply to: Seeking activity ideas for child with speech delay posted by Jake on June 17, 2000 at 15:21:01:

One resource I found was a book called "Language Games to Play with Your Child" by Allyssa McCabe. It's an older book (1987), but I found it at Amazon.com, I think. It has a lot of language games to play with your child (from infants through elementary aged childred). Granted, since my child was also speech-delayed, I've only used about 1/3 to 1/2 of the ideas in the book, but it's a good place for ideas.

The HANEN program was offered at our local hospital, and it gave us some great ideas for facilitating communication (www.hanen.org), including the use of music. My son has always been interested in songs and music, and some of the first words he gave us were in response to singing. I'd sing a favorite, and pause at a key word, waiting for him to fill it in. And evenutally he would!

Hope these ideas help!
