Speech pathologists know the importance of a rich language and communication environment to cognitive development. In pediatric speech therapy, the setting is full of interesting play-based activities that will build good language skills as well as encourage interaction with others.
There are many companies that provide the NDIS speech & language therapy support in Australia.
Here are a few tips for enriching your child's language development:
• Include picture books for children around you. Answer your children if they bring you books. Ask your child to bring you books. Take plenty of time to read your child's book and show the details.
• Let the toys show up with interest but out of reach so your child can make a decision. Take time to talk about toys and play with your child.
• Comment on things in the environment: flower color, weather, transportation, grocery store food. Respond to your child's movements or language. Save a portion of each travel activity or conversation. Make it a habit!
• Have fun so you can enjoy and care for your child! You will grow faster than you can imagine!
If you suspect that your child is slow to develop spoken language or has difficulty understanding language at the same level as his peers, discuss this with your pediatrician. It is a good idea to have your child examined by a speech pathologist.
