Core Word of the Week: Want

“I want that!” “Want it?” “I want to go!” “Want more!” The word “want” is one of the most common words used to express desire.

This word also tops high frequency vocabulary lists for toddlers and for preschoolers.

The word “want” can be one of the most powerful words for a beginning communicator. While a child’s vocabulary is developing, teach him/her to use a point gesture so that he/she can pair the word “want” with a point to request objects in the environment for which he/she has not
yet learned a vocabulary word. This word also pairs nicely with the determiner “that” for phrases like “want that.”

Be sure to model the word “want” to your child when asking them questions (e.g., “Do you want more?”) and when directing them (e.g., “I want you to clean your room”).

While “want” is a very powerful word, not all requests should begin with “I want.” Be sure to help your child use a variety of word combinations to make requests. In fact, in typically developing language the “I” is absent in the first 2-word combinations.

Also remember that requests with the word “want” do not need to always be about objects. Help your child to learn to request actions (e.g., go, run, jump), adverbs (e.g., fast, slow) and to request that other
people perform these actions too.

How do you teach the word "want"?

The Informed SLP

It doesn’t have to be either/or when you’re planning therapy for your minimally-verbal kids with autism. In 2015, Brady et al. used an intervention combining both modes that helped kids learn to say new words.

It’s the beginning of April, which means that it’s time for another free webinar!

Our on-demand webinar “Researching the Research: How Do I Know What To Believe?” was included in the poll for the last two months but was not selected. However, our organization believes that it is a vitally important webinar for parents. When knowledge is power in helping your child with apraxia of speech, you should be equipped to understand the difference between science and pseudoscience. This webinar will aid you in making informed judgments about trying unproven treatments.

“Researching the Research” will be FREE* for the month of April! (*$15 with CEUs)

From a study done by Green et al 2009, it takes 17 years for just 14% of research to become adopted into clinical practice! With so many treatment approaches on the market, sometimes it’s hard to know what has a solid evidence base behind it. For Childhood Apraxia of Speech, DTTC (Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing) and ReST (Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment) are the only 2 approaches with strong levels of research behind them. I highly encourage taking advantage of this FREE on demand webinar being offered by CASANA for the month of March.

Have you checked out this month's FREE* on-demand webinar?

In "Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing: A Treatment Approach for Severe Childhood Apraxia of Speech," you will learn goals of treatment, making clinical decisions regarding stimuli, organizing practice, cueing, varying temporal relationship, feedback and pacing. This webinar is only free for the month of March, so schedule time to watch it soon!
