What types of activities can I do to stimulate my child’s language development?

November 2, 2015

Talk to your child about everything! Talk about things you are doing: washing dishes (plates, bowls, silverware), setting the table (forks on napkin, spoon next to knife), bath time (reinforce naming body parts), dressing the child (body parts and spatial relationships, i.e. leg in pants), laundry (name socks, shirts, pants). Provide new experiences for your child by taking him to new places: supermarket (name fruits and vegetables); playgrounds (talk as you push your child on a swing); television (talk about shows with your child, like Sesame Street); airport (see planes arrive and depart); zoo (animals, what they eat).
