Observe, narrate, comment...without asking! Read this to find out why!
Want to create a reciprocal language rich environment for young language learners?
Then limit the number of test-like questions you ask during the day.
❓”What color is it?”
❓ “What shape is it?”
❓ “How many are there?”
❓ “What letter is that?”
❓ “What does a dog say?”
❓ “What does a cow say?”
S T O P 🛑 ❌ 🚫
Life is not a quiz!‼️The constant bombardment of WH questions creates a demanding environment that may cause some young children to avoid interacting with the adult.
Instead of quizzing, try just commenting.
Instead of asking, “What color is it?” try just saying, “Oohhh, you found the BLUE ball.” Instead of asking, “How many are there?” try just saying, “You have 3 crackers!”
For struggling language learners, the ultimate goal is to keep the child actively engaged in conversation. Too many test-like questions can hinder that goal.
Asking thoughtful questions periodically throughout the day during teachable moments is fine. But bombarding kiddos with strings of test-like questions can be overwhelming.
Comment...don’t quiz! 🙌🏼

We are here to support your child's home learning! If you have an established pod or co-op group, and are looking to supplement with literacy-based language group, please call for details! As always, individual speech-language therapy sessions are also available via zoom or in-person.
You already KNOW what to do!
I will say this over and over! Are there flash cards, apps, and toys that can help kids learn? Absolutely! But- kids will learn SO MUCH MORE when they are engaging with others during those activities - and when it comes to language, I really believe they can learn even more through good old fashioned play with another person- regardless of what toys or objects are involved!
We are resuming face-to-face sessions in the convenience of your own home (on a limited basis)!
Don't forget- Virtual sessions via Zoom offered any time!

autismparentingmagazine.com Back on March 13, 2020, a realization started to settle over this country as to what the actual impact COVID-19 (coronavirus) was going to have on all our communities. Since that time, people have been practicing “social distancing.” Schools have shut down, the expectations of the family unit ha...

Such a controversial topic. Worth a read!

Did you know?
Speech and language skills are a huge component of reading! It’s very common for a child to be an excellent decoder and have poor comprehension or vis versa. If your child is struggling with reading (most kids with communication delays and disorders will), an SLP can help!
If you have concerns about the speech-language development of your little one, it is best to get it checked out sooner than later!

Should my child be saying more?
When's the right time to take your child to see a speech pathologist? We asked our expert, Dr Elise Baker, to find out.
New study based on research on 27,000 kids worldwide:
Children acquire 90% of the consonants in their native language by age 5...including L and R.
New research on articulation development!!! Y’all, this is so exciting- McLeod & Crowe (2018) published their results and personally, I feel like this is great info!
What does this mean? The AVERAGE child will master each sound by the age noted- which also means that even if they are a little bit older and still haven’t mastered the sound, it’s ok. But I do think this is great info for parents & SLPs to have because we know the sooner the better (and usually quicker and easier too!) when we look at articulation intervention!
