School is out for the summer! There are so many fun activities you can incorporate into your summer days to encourage speech and language development.
Infants and Preschool Children
Chalk: children can play hangman, describe what they are drawing, have drawing contests, draw hopscotch, and much more. Encourage language-rich conversations as you and your child are drawing with chalk. Children can also draw pictures that have the sounds they are working on (e.g. S: draw a snake, sock, seven, dress, peaches).
Have fun this summer while promoting speech and language development!
