These are a few of my favorite things (speech therapy books for parents)

Speech Therapy Resources for Parents photo

This month I had the honor of decorating the main entrance display to the Ramsey Library.

I showcased a mini collection of some of my favorite parent friendly speech and language therapy books. My ultimate goal in sharing these books is to inform and empower parents and caregivers so they can make a difference in their child’s speech, language, cognition, and feeding skills.

If you’re squinting to read the titles of the books, I apologize as I’m a terrible photographer, please be relieved to know that I have listed them in this post. Amazon affiliate links have been included. Please click on the images to read descriptions of the books.

Intermingled between some of my favorite books (even more are located on my resources page), are some fun facts, FAQs, and information about speech language pathology and various disorders. As you’ll see SLPs do more than just articulation!

Who are SLPs

 Here is the ONLY book on this list NOT written by an SLP, but it’s still a wonderful and very informative read, especially if you want to learn about sign language and early language acquisition.
