It Takes Two to Talk gives parents the tools to make early language intervention a natural, ongoing part of everyday life with their child. New checklists and goal charts in the first chapter make it easier for parents and professionals to identify the child's stage of communication and choose the most appropriate interaction and communication goals right from the start. With a heightened focus on helping children initiate, take turns in enjoyable, extended interactions and increase their expressive language skills, the It Takes Two to Talk guidebook shows parents how to use responsive interaction strategies that increase children's language skills. Written in simple language and beautifully illustrated, this guidebook shows parents how to integrate It Takes Two to Talk strategies into everyday routines like mealtime, bath
time, playtime and book reading. To bring the strategies to life, the It Takes Two to Talk companion DVD provides clear examples of real parents applying the strategies with children at four developmental stages.
