Read with your child

If your child needs support with …

Speech Sounds: search for words that have your target sound

Early Language: Have your child point to things in the pictures. Model for them if they are not sure.

Later Language: Ask your child questions from every couple of pages. If they are not sure of the answers, provide them with the answer and then ask the question again.

Play with your child

Pretend Play – you can use toy food or toy utensils and set up a grocery store. Go shopping and checkout. If you don’t have pretend food, you can draw pictures or ask them to draw pictures of food items.

If your child needs support with …

Speech Sounds: find foods that have your target sound in them and practice correctly

Early Language: practice labeling food items. If your child does not know them, model the correct answer and ask them to repeat. If they cannot repeat the whole word, they can repeat the first sound. If no words or sounds, try having them find the food item you name. Give them 2-3 choices. 

Later Language: Ask your child to tell you two things about their favorite foods. Is it a dessert? What color is it? Where do you find the food? Is it sweet or salty?

Talk with your child

One of the most of important things we can do to support speech and language is to talk with our children. This week let them be with you while you make a meal. It can be as simple as a making a sandwich. Talk about the foods needed for the sandwich. Talk about what you do first, next, and last when making the sandwich. Ask them questions. Have them describe their favorite sandwich. Ask them to use a complete sentence. Ask them to tell you how to make the sandwich and you follow their directions exactly. Even if they do not respond, they are being exposed to wonderful and functional language by listening to you! Have Fun!!
