About      Contact      Idea Sheets


My name is Kate Ross. I am a professional wearing many hats, including speech-language pathologist, early childhood interventionist, professor, advisor, trainer, and author. These aspects of my professional life are reflected in the pages of this website. I hope you will find useful resources for your work with young children. Parents will also find practical ideas to support their children's developing communication skills. Enjoy.


Please view the Idea Sheets section where you'll find a number of practical opportunities to foster communication skills. Read through Early Vocabulary and Concepts for important initial words for young children beyond colors, shapes, numbers and letters. Speaking Like Elmer Fudd will explain why so many children err on /r/ and /l/ sounds. There are dozens of other ideas to guide to competent communication.
