Parent Tips

PARENT TIPS FOR IMPROVING COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR CHILD:

*    Slow down rate of speech and model (slightly over exaggerate) speech sounds your child may be working on.

*    When talking with your child, use descriptive words, such as curly red hair.

*    Don’t criticize grammar mistakes; instead, model good grammar.

*    Refrain from interrupting you child during his speech attempts, or telling him to slow down or start over, as that may break up his speech fluency.
