Join us for a virtual conversation about how to add language to your everyday activities to help grow your child’s talking and listening skills. Each conversation will be led by a Speech Language Pathologist from the Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center and focus on a different “tip to talk”.  Examples of topics include:

  • Why playing is so important: Mr. Potato head is full of language
  • Be silly and sing, swing, squish: Motivate your child to talk
  • Not this or that: Build your child’s vocabulary by using yours
  • Why conversation is much more important than colors, letters, numbers and shapes
  • Meal time: Who isn’t motivated by food?
  • Why no app will ever be as important as playing with you

Linda is passionate that parents are their child’s best teacher and she strives to provide parents with the tools they need to work on communication skills throughout their day.  She believes it is all about meeting a child where their skills are, teaching them a new skill, and motivating them to use that skill!


Lauren Masuga, M.A. CCC-SLP

Lauren has been working at Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center since 2006. She provides weekly, individualized speech, language and fluency therapy to children and their families, as well as leads a parent-toddler language group and a fluency group (when there is not a pandemic!).

She believes it is extremely important for families to be involved with a child’s care-they are the child’s best advocates and teachers.
