As the New Year begins, you may have goals that entail making play time with your little one more effective. I know I'm always on the look out for new and fun ways to engage Owen in activities.
Research shows, that families that engage their child in "conversational talk" (meaning-they describe the world around them rather than just telling them what needs to get done -"do this, come here, put that down") have bigger vocabularies and higher IQ scores.
If you're like me and want to do specific activities but also just be present, here are a few simple ways you can help encourage language development during any activity, routine, or outing.
I sure hope this is helpful to those of you interested. If you have any questions at all feel free to email me!
