Memory, obviously, enhances your child's memory, as the object is to remember where specific objects are on the playing surface; the game also presents opportunities to work on vocabulary, for example; if you pick a card with a yellow duck on it, you can name the duck, and ask questions like: What sound does a duck make; or what color is the duck

Play involving creating an imaginary scenario or world may help improve your child's creativity and make it necessary for them to use language to describe and direct the play. For example, if your child was pretending to go on an animal safari they would need to describe the animals they saw while out on safari, detailed descriptions such as a giant lion with sharp teeth that roared and ran towards us very fast not only creates strong associations between a lion and their behaviors and appearance, it is also a fun way for children to learn to make sentences using descriptive words or phrases.


Puppet Shows can enhance a child's ability to remember and retell a story, one that they have read, heard, or made up themself. Producing a puppet show with your child can help them develop their ability to form full sentences, by prompting the child to recite lines for the show, or helping them develop their own puppets dialogue. As a bonus children can also play with social interactions, by making the characters of the puppet show interact with one another the child can imitate observed social norms and practice using them in different situations.

Take advantage of the time you spend with your child in the car, using travel time as together time . Classic car games, like classic cars, never go out of style, try old favorites like I Spy where you pick out an object you see in the car or along the roadside and give the child clues until they guess the object you are thinking of or looking at. A sing-a-long is another way to get your child working on their speech, choose songs that are appropriate for their level of development, or are full of words and sounds you child has difficulty pronouncing (if you child has a hard time with the T sound try singing Tinkle Twinkle Little Star ). This way you are not only making travel time quality time with your child you are helping them to develop their language skills and deductive reasoning abilities.

Spending time talking and interacting with your child is important, but it is even more important if your child is experiencing challenges in the development of the language skills. In today s digital age, it is easy to forget that non-electronic forms of fun are important to the development of a child's essential communication skills. If you are interested in helping children with speech and developmental problems as a career choice, you can explore programs in the field of Speech Language Pathology.
