Communication Tips For Children

  • Talk naturally to your child. Talk about what your child is doing, and what he or she sees.

  • Take time to listen to your child. Respond promptly and appropriately so he or she knows you are listening.

  • Learn the milestones of speech and language development so you know what to expect from your child.

  • Identify and treat hearing, speech, and language disorders early to prevent problems with behavior, learning, reading, and social interactions.

  • Refer to Beyond Baby Talk by Apel and Masterson available at bookstores and www.asha.org or Look Who's Talking by Laura Dyer, M.C.D. CCC-SLP at www.littlelanguage.com
