Let’s Talk Together Busy Book has 20 educational activities written by award-winning Australian Speech Pathologist, Emily Mackie.

Let’s Talk Together has been intentionally created to boost your child’s language development. This Busy Book includes the most important language concepts to build a strong foundation for communication. The concepts in this Busy Book are typically learnt by children between the ages of 2½ – 3 years.

The structure of this Busy Book is centred on evidence-based principles, which create a language learning approach for all children; however, children with language difficulties benefit from this explicit approach significantly.

Emily’s unique therapy method, as well as drawing on her inspiration from her two daughters and love of Australia; brings to life simple, yet effective activities for your child with beautiful images and popular themes.  Each goal has step-by-step instructions, modelled sentences, expected outcomes and teaching tips for parents, professionals and educators.

The lay out of goals in Let’s Talk Together makes it the perfect resource for the mobile speech pathologist or educator. It will become your go-to resource for using visuals in speech therapy and the classroom. You can easily refer to table of contents to select activities that align with your language goals quickly. It can also be recommended to parents to use as a home program for their child.

Let’s Talk Together also aligns with The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education.

Let’s Talk Together was written by Certified, Practicing Speech Pathologist, Emily Mackie. To read more about Emily click here.
