Reviewer: Allison Martin

Teach Me How to Say It Right is an excellent resource for parents who wish to improve their child's speech and language abilities. Articulation of sounds and phonological (speech sounds) awareness are a particular strength. The book leads off with a good discussion of the many possible causes of speech problems, for example articulation, apraxia (mouth coordination), hearing loss, and so on. Soon you are immersed in a detailed discussion of potential speech problems, with a variety of speech and sound exercises and activities that parents can use right away. Although speech development can be a complex subject, this book covers a wide range of issues in a manner that is practical and easy to follow.

Teach Me How to Say It Right covers important topics such as language development, sound and word articulation, speech encouragement, phonological development, speech milestones, and literacy. In addition to a solid introduction to each concept, the book provides detailed ideas for parents to work with their young children. For example, the phonological skills section includes sample activities, example words and troubleshooting ideas. Parents learn ways to help their children through basic speech tasks, such as changing a sound to make a new word or breaking words into individual sounds. Different skills are broken down by age, from baby to mid-elementary age. Teach Me How to Say it Right demonstrates the value of lots of early stimulation for communication, and with this book parents are given plenty of tools to make that happen.
