Improve your child's language at home during Summer vacation.


Yes! You can be teaching your kids valuable language skills while they play in the backyard pool. You can spread their pool toys around the yard and ask them to race to find 1 or 2 or 3 of them. You will be helping them learn the names of the toys, follow the order of the toy list you presented. You can ask them where they found the toys, teaching them to answer "where" questions and be specific with their language responses. You can describe an object in the backyard as a means for providing a clue to the location of the toy. This teaches them to listen attentively, hold onto the verbal information and use that information to inform a response. You wont even realize that you're teaching them to infer based on the clues that you have given them. Its so much fun and its carry-over of many of the language lessons they are learning in therapy!
