Welcome newcomers start here

If you’re new to Little Stories, we’d like to welcome you! You’ve come to a place where we truly believe that your child has a story and with each word her story is told.

We are not about fluffy posts. We want to actually teach you something and make you think. We want to show you theories of language development and how they work in real life. We want you to know what to do with your child and WHY! So sometimes we get deep. We try to break it down into manageable parts, but what we are asking you to do is to slowly change the way you interact with your child over time to make a real impact on her language development. It takes work and understanding not only what to do, but the reasoning behind it. So, if you’re ready Little Stories class is in session and THIS is where we begin. These four posts will introduce you to our main theories and the language we use in many of our posts:

1) Fill the Page Theory (Or, if you’d rather watch than read, you can do that here)

2) Good Page, Bad Page

3) Types of Marks on the Page

4) Talk Less, Talk Smart

Ok, you did it! Little Stories 101 is over and now you’re ready to get to the work and the fun of playing and helping your child learn language!

And don’t forget, please feel free to contact me anytime. I love to hear questions and feedback from parents, therapists, teachers, and everyone else. You can also connect with other Little Stories families by introducing yourself or posting questions on our Facebook page. Finally, if you like a post, Pin it to Pinterest or click the Share button at the bottom of the post to help spread the Little Stories love! Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you back here soon!

    I’am so excited to learn more and apply the ” Fill the page ” to my and Ryder’s approach to his speech therapy. This is a wonderful website and I’m so happy i now have a place to come too. It has been a long and frusterating road for me with Ryder’s therapy because I feel very left out of the loop of what I can be doing or doing more of at home. I was a “Milk Mom” also, and now I feel a little more understanding of how this can and will work. Thank You so much.
