If your child is having trouble or delays with early language skill development, here are tips to help you improve his/her language development at home. They’re fun, easy, and you can incorporate them into your daily life without much hassle.
Early Language Development Tips
- Narrate what you are doing or talk about things in your environment (“Mommy is washing the dishes, daddy is making a sandwich, I see a big airplane in the sky, etc.)
- Shared reading (another opportunity to identify and label vocabulary, ask simple WH-questions)
- Sing songs that have repetitive sequences (Wheels on the bus, Old McDonald had a Farm, If You’re Happy and You Know It)
- Follow your child’s lead (repeat what he/she says, elaborate and expand upon it, ask questions, etc.)
