Is this different from the Speech-Language Development Handouts?

  • Yes, this is a different resource! The key difference is that this resource is organized by age and provides a concise overview of the skills acquired in each age group.
  • The Speech-Language Development Handouts are organized by skill area and go into much more depth with examples, terminology, and supporting research. They also contain other topics that aren’t associated with age milestones (hierarchies, stuttering, place-manner-voice and vowel charts, phonological awareness, etc.)
  • Both resources utilize the same milestones and research.

  1. Hannah King

    These are my favorite! I love how they’re organized. The bright colors and shapes make it very appealing to practitioner and parent!

  2. Amanda Rhodes

    These milestone handout are so helpful! As a new graduate I have found these very useful for coming up with goals that are age appropriate and handing out to parents! They are also visually appealing which make them good to laminate and hang up as decoration in a therapy room. I highly recommend!

  3. Stephanie Hudson

    This has been very helpful for giving to parents who want to know what things to look for with their child. It’s easy to read and understand, so parents always have good feedback when I give it to them.

  4. Jill Sparks

    I love using these visuals during parent meetings to help them understand the needs of their child and how we will be targeting these skills during speech therapy. The visual appeal is fantastic – colorful, dynamic charts and graphs. Parents and teachers both appreciate this information.

  5. Sarah Steppler

    When I opened my private practice and was looking for an easy access handout for parents this was the one that spoke to me. It’s so easy to understand, it’s easy to access and it is very parent friendly.
