One of the best ways to help your child speak and listen better is by reading to them! Reading is a wonderful way to help develop your child’s word knowledge, which gives them more words to speak with. It also provides children with a visual cue to help them understand what words mean and how we put words together to make meaningful sentences. In addition, reading aloud to your children teaches them to listen. For children who struggle with correct sound production, reading provides a targeted way for parents to expose their children to the sounds they need to learn and offers many opportunities for them to practice their “new sound” production. Another way to engage your child and practice language skills is through technology. Try downloading some language, reading, and/or vocabulary apps or games.
