Happy Wednesday Friends! 🌟 Many times during initial speech evaluations the therapist will ask parents how many words/what types of words their child is producing. This chart are examples of types of words children produce. The biggest thing to remember with producing early words is consistency and intention!
Happy Friday Friends 🌟 Many times with early intervention, parents ask us what a meaningful word is defined as. We usually ask a parent with children with 1 year olds what words they are hearing consistently at home. This post reflects on the definition of a meaningful word and an example as well!

Hi friends! 💖 Let’s talk Speech Therapy! If you’re worried that your child might be having trouble communicating, these are some signs you should keep an eye out for. Early intervention in speech therapy can make a world’s of a difference & can prevent more severe speech impairments. If you are seeing some or many of these signs, contact a speech-language pathologist for a consultation! DM us if you have any questions.
Happy Monday friends! Let’s talk about Sensory Play! Here at Talk About Therapy we have “Fun Bins” filled with water beads for our friends to play with! These bins are dedicated to create an overall awareness and stimulation of the core senses.

💖How can you create a sensory bin at home?

It’s so simple!!! All you need is uncooked rice or beans and a bowl/bin. Allow your child to play with a variety of textures, substances, and ingredients. 

💖What are some other sensory activities?

Some examples are playdough, water/sand play, finger painting, music, etc!
Happy March friends! 🌞 As we begin a new month, we want to take a moment to reflect on the importance of having an open mind & open heart when working with our friends who may have a difficulty communicating! Always remember that every person has a unique way of expressing themselves. We love to embrace our differences because that’s what makes each of us special!

Hi Friends! 🦋 Today’s post outlines a few different methods for AT-HOME therapy. 
✨Check out the link:

Hi friends, Happy Tuesday💕! Playtime is one of the most beneficial experiences for cognitive development.

Hello friends!!! Happy Thursday❣️! Today we are talking about the effects of pediatric open mouth breathing. Don’t be alarmed by these effects! They can be prevented with proper guidance from a qualified dentist, ENT, or speech-language pathologist!
Happy Monday friends!!! ✨ Today we are talking about the differences between Speech & Language. This chart simply breaks down the details! SLP’s work to improve both speech & language through therapy!

✨Receptive Language refers to the ability to comprehend written or spoken language.

✨Expressive Language refers to the ability to express wants & needs.
Hi friends! Happy Tuesday💕! In this post we outline the importance of early-intervention speech therapy! If your child has sessions with a speech-language pathologist at a young age, they are less likely to develop speech complications as they grow older. Your SLP will likely work to improve your child’s oral-motor skills & improve their quality of life. 

🗣If you have any questions regarding the indicators of early speech impediments, feel free to DM us!
Hello friends! Happy Monday🤩! Today we’ll be talking about the importance of Pre/Post Op frenectomy care. 


🗣 A frenectomy is a common dental procedure where a piece of tissue under the tongue (lingual frenulum) is relieved. This can help the patient’s speech, swallow, and oral development patterns.


🗣Pre-Op treatment can ensure a release that is optimal.

🗣 It can reduce tension in the head, neck, and shoulders. It can also significantly reduce headaches.

🗣 It can prevent the reattachment of tissue after the procedure.

🗣 It can prevent the formation of Scar Tissue.
Our wonderful friend, Abby,  got released last week at the Alabama Tongue-Tie Center - Richard Baxter, DMD, MS. Abby has been working hard with Ms. Niti for an optimal release. We are excited to have Abby come back into the clinic to continue working towards her speech goals. We are so proud of you Abby!

Hello friends! HAPPY FRIDAY! 🦋🤍 Most babies say their first word between 9-14 months. Don’t forget that every baby is different, so don’t be alarmed if your child doesn’t fall into this range!

Some common first words are: Mama, Dada, Ball, Cat, Dog, Nana, Eat, Ta(TaTa), Baby, Uh-Oh, Hi, Bye, Hello, etc.
💫Good Afternoon Friends 💫

Happy Thursday Friends 🍓 

We wanted to shed some more light on some mealtime frustrations you and your child might experience, the notorious “NO!” to anything you offer to your child! We understand how frustrating that can be when offering food to your little one. We’ve found success when offering to choices to our kids, they are more likely to help make the feeding experience more enjoyable

Hello friends! ⭐️ Today’s special guest is our sweet girl Lilia! We love our babies here at Talk About Therapy!

Happy Thursday👅 Oral Motor Exercises are extremely crucial for the development and intervention of:

✨Strengthing of Oral Structures

We are huge fans of checking our kids oral structures to ensure that we are on the right track for proper oral development. But what are we looking for? We’ve created a blog post and broken it down by age for the stages of oral motor development. Click the link to learn more:

Happy Tuesday Friends 👶🏽 Many times we get a lot of questions about common first words we hear from our babies. We’ve listed below the most common words we hear from babies today. How can you encourage your child to produce/imitate more words?

✨ If you hear certain babbles from your baby, say the babbles you hear and see if they imitate them (i.e. if your baby says “ba-ba” later on day “ba-ba” and see if they imitate it back

✨ Simplify the amount of words you’re using when speaking to your child

✨ Take LOTS of pauses when speaking to your child to see if and how they fill in the gaps

✨ Give your child choices to see if they imitate a word “do you want to eat or night night?” 

✨ Pair words with ASL (American Sign Language) to help facilitate communication early on

Happy Tuesday Friends 🙊 Today we’d like to talk more about Language Expansion! This is a great strategy to use when your child is continuing to progress in language. You can use language expansion when your child is using 1 word to describe something or even 2-3 words; the parent’s sole goal is to add words to build longer phrases! Language expansion:

✨utilizes 2-3 words to expand upon a word your child frequently says

✨can be paired with waiting for a response: which allows the parent to expand upon a certain word 5-10 times and then waiting 15-20 seconds to see if the child can expand upon the words themselves

✨allows the child to build more words into their vocabulary

When using language expansion, it is preferred to limit the amount of words being used to make sure the process does not become overwhelming for the child. 

✅The post above gives some great examples of how to expand upon simple 1 words to 2-3 word phrases

✅ Remember to keep the process fun and engaging, your child will pick up on your cues!

Happy Thursday Friends 🍼 Today we want to provide more insight on a popular topic: Baby-led weaning. 

Baby led weaning has a multitude of definitions and ideas on how it should be conducted. At Talk About Therapy we suggest our parents begin introducing new foods to their babies at approximately 6 months. This allows babies to:

✨Learn self-feeding skills

✨Introduce a variety of tastes, textures, colors, and smells

✨Create positive eating habits with food

We have highlighted some food ideas you can begin to use when you start baby-led weaning. Check out our link for more information:

Happy Tuesday everyone 🍪 Feeding therapy can be a challenge as is. One of the best ways to make the process smoother is getting our kids more involved. Have your child: 

✨Use the potato masher to mash the potatoes

✨Use cookie cutters to make a cute shape out of their sandwiches

✨Wash the fruits and vegetables

If they are involved they will feel more prideful in the food presented to them. With the cookie cutter technique this allows the child to:

✨ choose a shape

✨choose the food they want to make a shape out of

The child will feel a sense of independence and control during meal time, which reduces food anxiety!
Happy Thursday 😛 Today we want to shed some more light on tongue ties. There are actually three types of ties: tongue ties, lip ties, and buccal ties. All three of these together are known as Tethered Oral Tissue (TOTs), is thick tissue that limits movement of the tongue, lips, and cheeks. TOTs can affect: 

✨Breathing (Airway trouble)

In this post we have highlighted some quick things that can help you identify if you feel your child presents with a form of TOTs. If you are looking for more information check out our blog post!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!! Today we have a dual post. We’ve created a post here on IG as well as a post on our blog regarding “following directions”. 

Following directions is an integral part of receptive language that really shows us if our child is comprehending language. There are routine directions and simple commands: 

✨Routine directions are everyday directions we ask our children to do (i.e. put your dishes in the sink, clean up our toys, take off your shoes)

✨ Simple commands are more complex directions that are not asked of our children on the daily. They can range from 1-step commands to 2-3 step commands (i.e. pick up the book, pick up the spoon and put it on the table)

Check out the link in the bio for 10 tips and tricks on how to help your kids follow directions!
Happy Wednesday everyone 🥛 Let’s talk open cup drinking today. Many parents begin transitioning their child to some form of sippy cup between 6-8 months. While sippy cups can be a great transition tool, it’s not a permanent solution. We highly recommend we begin utilizing open cup at 12 months of age. 

How do we transition to an open cup?

✨ Fill a small amount of water in a cup
✨ Help your child guide the cup to his/her mouth
✨ Hand-Over-Hand, you and your child tilt the cup to their lips
✨ Let the cup rest on the lips for approximately 1-2 seconds and then take it away

Open cup drinking is not as easy at it sounds! 

✨ Our favorite cup to promote open cup drinking are cut-out cups and tasting cups (Both you can find on Amazon)

Our favorite place to promote safe drinking is in the bathtub. 

✨When your child is taking a bath take a fresh cup of water and see how your child does drinking the water. There’s definitely less of a mess!
Happy Thursday 🍟 Let’s talk messy eating today! Messy eating is crucial when we want our kids to begin exploring new foods. This allows them to feel in control of the food and encourages exploration of new tastes and textures. 

When we begin introducing feeding skills, we always encourage messy eating so our kids enjoy! We encourage parents to: 
✨ give their kids a small portion of a new food along with some utensils 
✨ place the child in their high chair with a big t-shirt they are ready to get dirty
✨allow their kids to enjoy playing with the food 

You never know, some of the food might end up in their mouth ☺️
Happy Monday Everyone 🌴 Today we want to talk about speech intelligibility! Speech intelligibility is how much you and/or others can understand your child. This chart does a great job at describing how much we should understand at each age! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whenever we conduct a speech evaluation we always ask the family not only about how much of their child they can understand, but also how much an unfamiliar listener can understand as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨What an unfamiliar listener can understand of your child is great to know, because sometimes our ears become accustomed to words our children say on the daily. An unfamiliar listener might have difficulty understanding words and phrases we hear from our child everyday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Friday 💫 Let’s talk meal time today! Many of us can remember having some great conversations and memories during meal time. But how can we facilitate speech development? Here are some great ideas to get the conversation flowing with our little friends!

    I have been bringing my son here since late August and have absolutely loved our experience so far! Leah is amazing with him and always makes sure to keep things fun and educational at the same time. She does a phenomenal job and has already … More improved his speech a ton. My son gets so excited to come here every week to see everyone! Niti has done a wonderful job of making sure this is a safe, fun, educational and happy place filled with wonderful therapists. I highly recommend them to everybody!

    Our daughter struggled with solids for months after we first introduced them, and we felt desperate for help. I took her to a major children's hospital here in Atlanta and saw no improvement. Finally, I found Niti online and brought … More my daughter in. Before Niti even looked into my daughter's mouth she could tell there was a tongue tie, but she soon discovered a tongue AND lip tie and referred us to a dentist for a release. We are now a month post-op, and my daughter is making new sounds and eating all kids of new foods without struggling. Thank you to everyone at Talk About Therapy! We will always feel so thankful we found you.

    My son has been receiving speech therapy with Bianca for over 6 months now and I can’t say enough how WONDERFUL she is. With my son it can take awhile to adjust to new surroundings, but when he started with Bianca she was so patient with … More him. My son looks forward to going to speech therapy every week, and enjoys his time with Bianca. I’ve also seen a lot of progress in his speech, for example, before he started my son was only able to point to ask for what he wants, now he comes up to us to ask for what he wants. I would absolutely recommend anyone looking for a great place for their kids, this is the place to go. Not only is Bianca amazing, but everyone there is great and so helpful with anything you need in the process.

    I’m long overdue for my review of all the staff at Talk About Therapy. I just want to say how amazing they are. My daughter has been receiving speech therapy from here since March of last year, and she absolutely loves it. She lights up … More as soon as she sees Ms. Rachel every session. I can’t say enough great things about Ms. Rachel and how she has connected with my daughter. I’m soooo thankful. The owner Niti is amazing as well. She is so knowledgeable and thorough. She was able to help me with my son, whenever no one else could seem to figure it out. Now both of my children have had their tongue ties corrected. Thanks to Niti. I’m so grateful for all the staff at Talk About Therapy. Thank you guys for everything you do. We appreciate you!!!

    My son had issues speaking from 2 years old. My husband and I took him to Talk About Therapy when he was 3, where we met Rachel. He immediately loved her and so did we. On the first visit, she diagnosed our son with a lip and tongue tie. … More This was something that his dentist had missed for years. She made us feel like family. The staff here is amazing. Niti is the owner and speech language pathologist and she goes out of her way to speak every time we are there. She knows our son by name. We love it here. My son is about to be 5 years old and talking our heads off. The amount of care and love these therapists put forth is beyond admirable. I suffer from anxiety. So this process was extremely difficult for me. Both Niti and Rachel have been a Godsend. Thank you for helping us get through this. And for always being a call or text away. They are always accommodating and the best with children. Definitely recommend for any parents whose little ones are having speech issues.

    We’ve been going to Talk About Therapy since the beginning of June 2021, and we absolutely LOVE it!! Everyone there is wonderful. Niti made sure we got approved through insurance as fast as possible, Bianca is a WONDERFUL speech language … More therapist, and my son has had such a connection with her. He’s learned so much, and his therapy is very intense and repetitive so we have to go slow and steady with him, but he looks forward to going twice a week and has never been even slightly upset at the idea of seeing everyone. Everyone is warm and welcoming, and I truly don’t know where I would be without them.

    We used Talk About Therapy for our two year old in early 2021 and saw amazing progress! He actually ended up “testing out of” speech therapy which is what every parent wants to hear.

    Niti is wonderful! She help me and my son out when he had his tongue tie done . It was hard to do the exercises with him being an older baby trying to get in his mouth but she showed me ways to get it done without a fight. Thank you again … More Niti for the help!!! 🥰

    My daughter was showing early developmental delays at her 12 month wellness checkup. Her pediatrician referred us to Talk About Therapy. I was very nervous and worried about my baby. The owner Niti was very professional and helpful. She … More educated me as a parent as well. My daughter has been in speech therapy for 6 months now and she is saying a lot more words now and is much better with communicating. Developmentally she is far more advanced than she was at her 12 month wellness checkup. She also just started with a new therapist Bianca. I was very nervous for my daughter to have therapy with anyone else but Niti. I had gotten comfortable with Niti, and so did my daughter, but the new therapist Bianca is amazing with my daughter. Whenever I need to reschedule or have any questions Niti and Bianca are always available. Talk About Therapy goes above and beyond. They have helped my daughter tremendously and eased my anxieties and concerns as a parent with her speech development.

    I’m really glad that we were referred to Niti for my infant daughter’s speech therapy. She was super helpful and accommodating. The exercises she gave us for our daughter made a huge difference and you could definitely tell that it helped … More her with feeding. I would recommend her to friends and see her again should our daughter or future children have any speech related issues. Thanks again Niti!
  • Avatar jamila bivens ★★★★★ a year ago
    I made the best decision by picking Niti as my son’s therapist. She’s pleasant and patient. She detected the cause of his feeding problem (tongue tie) and we got it fixed. He was finished with therapy within the three months he was given. … More We’d seen progress every week and immediately after his reverse. My son no longer needs a feeding tube thanks to her. If any parent is looking a speech therapist, I highly recommend.

    Niti is fantastic! My infant some began seeing her for feeding therapy prior to having his posterior tongue tie revised and post-revision. She did wonders with my son! She is very knowledgeable and patient (which is key when working with … More babies) and she fantastic at following up and checking in with us. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone dealing with the same issues.

    We loved Niti! She helped us with my 7 month old’s rough transition to solids. She was patient and helped both with my daughter’s feeding skills and my comfort as a parent.

    Niti is very knowledgeable and has been so easy to work with. She identified my son's tongue and lip tie, and helped us find the appropriate provider to get them released. I am an SLP myself, but I don't have any experience with … More oral motor function pre and post tongue/lip tie releases. We were definitely in good hands with Niti as she is a wealth of knowledge in this area!
