Here are some ways to foster language skills and development:
Providing Learning Toys Play has been considered as the work of child and major portion of play consists of toys. One of the best option is giving the kid educational toys which will provide an essence of learning through play. Learning toys teach the child that language is fun to learn which stimulates child’s developing memory. Toys build the base for both reading and writing through muscle memory instead of rote learning. Talk And Read With Them The more a parent narrates the happenings of the day, the more opportunity a kid gets to develop language skills. Example- Telling your child-“We are going to dress up and go for a walk”. Its always a good sign to read to your baby for future reading success. Parents can always start with simple picture story books and advance to story books as the child grows. Telling And Making Up Stories It’s always a good sign to tell stories to your child in an elaborated form. Include characters and adventures in your story which are of interest to your child. Going against the interests of your kid can make the activity boring for the child. In the end, eventually words will become the most efficient way to communicate. A delay in language skills can cause frustration in a child as well as miscommunication about her expressions. As a parent, make your kid develop language skills to grow into a person who can interact with others through life.
