Baby Monitor

A guide to how your baby's communication skills develop in the first three years

The Carruth Center is proud to distribute Baby Monitor: Language Development Guide, a detailed calendar to assist new parents as they “monitor” their child’s developmental milestones. The guide provides age appropriate, easy-to-implement activities that parents can do with their child to enrich the child’s language.

Baby Monitor was written, edited and designed by the professional staff and associates of The Parish School, many of whom are speech-language pathologists who specialize in language development and are involved in early childhood education. The Parish School has been educating children who have communication delays and learning differences for over 30 years.

This calendar was made possible through generous grants from The Fondren Foundation, Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation and The Lyons Foundation.

We hope that you find Baby Monitor to be a useful tool. Please note that this resource is not for resale. Baby Monitor is available free of charge while supplies last. To request a hard copy, please contact
