How to Encourage Your Young Child’s Communication Development (Part 1 of a 4-Part Series)
Part 1: The Power of Waiting
This 4-part series describes effective strategies you can use at home during daily routines and activities to foster your child's speech and language development. Part 1 is about my favorite strategy: The Power of Waiting. Many parents tend to anticipate their child's wants and needs and consequently miss many natural and meaningful language opportunities.
Future posts in this series will be about creating communicative temptations, how to be an effective language model, and more.
This month I am excited to be guest posting for Mama's Organized Chaos. Katrina Villegas is a mom and shares information about everything from picky eating to sleep training. Head over to the Mama's Organized Chaos blog to check out the full post on How to Encourage Your Young Child's Communication Development, Part 1: The Power of Waiting!
