As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I am often asked- “What can I do as a parent to improve my child’s speech? language? vocabulary?”
My best advice is to make the most of your daily activities (i.e. cooking and eating, play time, story time, etc.) There are a lot of simple things you can do as a parent during these activities that help your child develop a larger vocabulary, enhance language, and improve speech.
When asked to write a blog post for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, I thought it would be a great idea to write about making the most of story time!
