Q: How can I help my child progress in language skills?
A: Remember that everything you do involves language and can be used as a learning experience. Use everyday activities, such as baking cookies and planting flowers, and special activities, such as going to the zoo or beach, to build vocabulary and teach new concepts. These “fun” times can be done 2-3 times a week to provide opportunities for language growth. A great way to keep learning going is to take pictures of the activity, put pictures in a scrapbook and talk about the “fun” again and again. With time, you’ll have a wonderful collection of memories that can be used to review the new vocabulary, concepts and grammar that you introduced. Should you have concerns, Children’s Hospital offers speech/language pathology at several locations.
