This speech therapist taught her dog to speak - here's how you can, too

• arclein
Hunger started to say "play" whenever Stella looked down at her toy. Or she said "eat" at dinner, or "outside" when it was time for a walk. She would repeat them over and over again ?" at least five to ten times before moving on, in order to give the dog a chance to make the connection. The author says it's important to notice the things your own dog is trying to tell you with its behaviors and zero in on those words. During her day job, Hunger uses augmentative and alternative communication devices with some of her clients. They're basically tablets containing buttons corresponding to words. Those who have difficulty speaking can push a button or a series of buttons to communicate.
