How Do I Improve My Child's Speech?

Does it seem like your child should be using more developed speech? Language is learned by hearing it over and over. Children should be building their speech skills as they grow, and you should continue to watch them improve. If not, children may fall behind in academics and communication with others. Here are some tips to help that development process along:

  1. Expand your child’s sentences. If your child doesn’t use complete sentences (i.e. “doggy run”) you can repeat what he/she said in the complete form. So you could reply with, “Yes, the doggy is running!” You may even add additional descriptive information about what the child is discussing. It is important to find a balance when using this technique. It can become overwhelming if used after every phrase the child speaks.
  2. Play naming games or read to your child to increase vocabulary knowledge. Children must hear what objects are named to be able to talk about them. Describe how objects are similar and different, what they do, etc. In addition, ask questions to have your child name objects and describe them.
  3. Use parallel play or self talk. Parallel play is when you play alongside your child with the objects that he/she is using. Using self talk is describing what you’re doing while you’re playing with your child. For example, “This is my ball. The ball is blue. I am bouncing the ball. I am rolling the ball.” This helps your child make connections between activities and speech.

HealthPoint Rehab offers speech and language evaluations to see if your child’s speech is up to speed. If so, our Speech Language Pathologists use techniques and activities that promote and develop speech.
