Play Based Therapy
Play time is the best time for a child to learn speech and language. While playing with your child, help them learn new words and how to use them by labeling what toys you’re playing with and how you’re playing with them. For example, when playing with toy cars you can work on modeling the word, “car” and the “vroom vroom” sound a car makes. You can help your child build on their speech and language skills while playing with just about any toy they have. You can even create games out of ordinary everyday things, like pretending a water bottle is a microphone and singing to your favorite songs together. https://www.tyketalk.com/ is a great resource for early speech and language development, and it provide tips on how you can help your child build on their skills.
