
Give your child lots of encouragement.
Children thrive on praise and the more
you acknowledge their achievements
the more likely they are to succeed.
If your child gets a word wrong do not
correct them instead repeat the word in
the correct way and over time your child
will learn how to say the words in the
correct way.
Be an active play partner, identify your
child’s interests and join them in playing.
Try to eat together at least once a day
as this is a good opportunity for you to
talk about your day. This will not only
develop your child’s communication
skills but also their social skills.
Use talking to build good relationships
with your children.
Sing together as often as you can. The
way that songs rhyme means that
children are more likely to remember
them and understand how words are
formed.
If you have concerns about your child’s
speech, talk to your health visitor, family
support worker or a member of the
children’s centre team.
