Steps to Building Verbal Imitation in Toddlers on DVD - 6 hours credit


6 hour course on DVD - ASHA CEUs available for SLPs

This workshop on DVD is based on theory and information from Laura Mize’s book Building Verbal Imitation in Toddlers.

Imitation is the core skill most late talkers haven’t yet mastered. In this fast-paced course, you’ll learn how to teach toddlers with developmental delays to talk using science-backed strategies which emphasize imitation as the KEY component.

This method delivers a practical framework for knowing where to begin work with a late talking child, provides ideas for what to try when a young child’s progress stalls, and can serve as your new approach when your standard methods don’t seem to be adequate for a particular child’s issues.

In addition to "theory," you'll see many video clips from real life therapy sessions implementing the techniques during familiar play activities and receive practical handouts to organize your sessions and share with families.

This course is essential information for all early intervention professionals who work in programs that emphasize family training. Laura’s simple, straight-forward approach is easy for therapists to teach parents to use during familiar play-based activities and daily routines at home. Often SLPs and other therapists aren’t sure how to explain what we do so that parents understand and are able to carry over successes. Laura’s practical style will fill in that gap so you’ll know what to say when you’re working with parents.

You’ll learn a step by step process for moving children forward with expressive language. More importantly, you’ll understand what prerequisite skills a child should have mastered before moving on to the next level. This will prevent a child from going weeks or months without seeing any measurable progress in expressive language. You’ll also receive suggestions for what to try when a child seems to be “stuck” at any particular point in therapy.

This course is available for .6 ASHA CEUs for speech-language pathologists and 6 training hours for other professionals. With purchase you'll receive a set of 3 DVDs, a course manual and set of copy-ready handouts for parents, and all forms required for processing CE credit including a self-assessment of concepts, a program evaluation, certificate of completion request and ASHA CEU participant for (if applicable). To obtain CE credit, you must return the required forms via email to or via regular mail in the envelope provided with the course.
