1. Why Study Baby Talk?
In this chapter, we will discuss the rationale for understanding the vocal-to-verbal continuum as it relates to diagnosis and intervention of children referred to us with suspected speech sound disorder. We will discuss the early symptoms exhibited by children who are later diagnosed with speech sound disorders.
2. The Earliest Vocalizations
In this chapter, we will discuss reflexive phonations and cooing-gooing. We will outline when these behaviors emerge and how to characterize these productions.
3. Vocal Exploration
In this chapter, we will discuss how the infant uses the speech system to produce sounds for play and communication. We will watch videotaped segments of an infant demonstrating vocal play over several months.
4. Moving Ever So Closer to Words
In this chapter, we will watch our infant move into the speech-like productions of reduplicated and variegated babbling. We will discuss the importance of these productions to later verbalizations.
5. Now You’re Talking!
In this chapter, we will analyze the phonetic, phonemic, and suprasegmental characteristics of early word productions. We will follow our infant as she produces a variety of early words.
