Abstract

Purpose/Rationale: Minimal resources are available for parents of toddlers who have delayed expressive language. The purpose of this research is to compile information into a free, accessible and practical format.

Methods: The research is a non-empirical, meta-analysis and case control retrospective review. Parents of children between 0-3 years of age with expressive language delays attending the Roy Eblen Speech and Hearing Clinic (RESHC) for treatment received a survey to complete. The responses of the parents guided the selection of topics in the pamphlet.

Results: Parents asked questions about the following areas: communication milestones, reasons for delay, ways to encourage language development, efficacy of speech therapy, and effects of language delay on academic success.

Conclusion: Parents have many questions about early intervention and about how they can help their children develop language. Based on survey results, the authors developed a resource pamphlet addressing topics identified by parents as important and relevant.
