5 Tips To Get Your Toddler Talking
💡Face to face – get down to your child’s level. It is important for your child to be able to see your face and all the non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, pointing and body language for them to learn language.
💡Build on what they say – Listen and pay attention to what your child says. Repeat what your child says then add one word or a new vocabulary. For example, If your child says : “car”, you can say “Red car”, or “ The car is fast”.
💡Show them the right way – Young children often make mistakes. Show them that you understand, rather than asking them to repeat words correctly. Say the word or sentence again correctly for your child. For example, if they say “Look at the dod”, you can say “Yes, it’s a dog” 🐶
💡Have fun together 🤗 – Join in and play with your child. Use actions, songs and playful sounds to make the activity fun and engaging.
