Facts

There are ways you can boost your child’s oral language skills at home. Here are a few ideas:

 

  • Communicate with your child as much as you can. During the early childhood years, sing and play lots of music. Talk about what you see when you’re driving in the car or at the supermarket. Listen to your child. Give your child plenty of time to respond, and resist the temptation to jump in and fill the silence.
  • Make reading an interactive experience. Discuss the book’s pictures, and let your child make up a new ending or act out the story with puppets. Read to your child and encourage nursery rhymes.
