‘Speech And Language’
Internet may have earned a bad name for letting mankind lose itself into the world of never ending information but this very ‘advancement’ has brought the community of special needs parents from all over the globe together.
Various special needs groups on Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Twitter have been helping new parents by not just coming to terms with the diagnosis but also with the ways and means with which they can manoeuvre easily through this unchartered territory.
These groups are empowering new and old parents like never before. All a parent need is to post his/her question or concern in one of these groups and kind hearted parents jump in to answer and share their own journey and stories along with their advises. This is one of the best times to be a parent in the history of the world. The information is easily available and if one has the curiosity and the intention, platforms like youtube have so many resources available for free.
In today’s blog post I would like to share some of these wonderful ‘Speech and Language channels’ for you all. Speech is one of the most delayed milestone for most of our children and it is understandable why parents become extremely worried about the children’s challenges to communicate with their social environment. A comprehensible speech goes a long way into building up the confidence of the child, which is why it is imperative that we all work to create opportunities for better speech exposure for our children.
Here is a list of some of Youtube channels that are working exclusively for ‘Speech and language’ and I believe these can help many parents learn and impart such sounds and language related activities to their children and many more.
