Are you still digging out from under all the wrapping paper? Have your kids tried, used, and already abandoned some of their toys? Here are some tips for re-engaging them in play while building their language skills with those very toys - as well as others that you probably have.
As a way to give parents some guidance on using toys to build language skills, I created this simple handout that provides tips and ideas for working on developing language skills while playing with a variety of types of open ended toys and games.
I hope you find it useful for working with your kids to generalize and cement those skills they’re working on in speech-language therapy.
So, while you're playing..... keep on talking!
