You will find useful links listed to the right for language and learning at home as well as speech/language development.  I have also listed tips to help your child's speech and language development.

  • Be a good speech model for your child.  Use proper sentences.  Don’t use baby talk.  It’s ok to correct your child when they make a mistake.  Have him/her imitate the correct sound or sentence.  Practice helps reinforce correct speech.
  • Pronounce words clearly, slowly and correctly for your child to hear and imitate.
  • Make sure your child is looking at you when you are both talking.
  • Let your child watch your face, lips and, tongue as you form sounds and words prolonging the speech sound your child has difficulty with.  (Example: “Where is the ssssssock?”)
  • Praise your child when the sounds are correct, especially if the sounds have previously been difficult for the child.
