WorldCat is the world's largest library catalog, helping you find library materials online.   You can help your child say the words he knows when you: Talk about the things you use, like “cup,” “juice,” “doll.” Give your child time to name them. Ask your child questions about the pictures in books. Give your child time to name things in the picture. Smile or clap your hands when your child names the things that he sees. The seminal study on this topic, the book Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of Young American Children, correlated the number of words a child hears by age 3 to that child’s success later in life. Modern experts agree that the more words our children hear as their brains develop most significantly, the better.   If by 18 months your child is not talking at all, it is a good idea to get a speech evaluation. Some kids will start talking just fine when they are two or older, however. These strategies can help in the meantime to encourage your child as much as possible in a positive way at home.

  But we found that the content did not live up to the title. I was unable to find specific, helpful exercises to actually teach a child to pronounce certain sounds. Some of the activities included are "sing 'Old MacDonald' with your child," or "count the number of letters in this word," "speak clearly to your child" or "read a book to your child."/5(30).   For example if your child says, “I see a bish!” you can emphasise the correct pronunciation by saying, “Wow! What a big fish”. Don’t expect your child to repeat the word or produce the correct sound right there and then. Instead continue modelling the correct pronunciation so that your child can begin to hear the difference.   This book takes a child-led approach to encouraging language development. We hope you enjoy discovering more about how language grows and ways you can choose to nourish its development in your child. The main focus in this book is on babies and young children. As it's useful to see the progression of language development throughout all the preschool years, we've included . Dorothy P. Dougherty, MA, CCC-SLP, has worked with children and adults in school, clinical and private settings for over 30 years. She is the author of Teach Me How to Say it Right: Helping Your Child with Articulation Problems (New Harbinger Publications), Talking on the Go (American Speech Language Hearing Association) and How to Talk to Your Baby (Perigee/Putnam).

5. Follow your child's lead. If your little one seems interested in a particular picture in a book, keep talking about it. If she seems intrigued by a boat, show her more boats and talk about them. Teach your child to breathe correctly. This is very important! Shallow breathing is an invitation to panic. Proper breathing, on the other hand, will help your child relax and speak clearly. So give your child these instructions: “Place one hand at the top of your stomach, just below the . Get down on the floor and play with your toddler. Let her choose the toy or activity and talk about what she's doing (DE ).Join in with your toddler's play, repeat the words she’s using and make sure she can see your face and mouth when you will give her lots of opportunities to hear clear examples of the words she's learning (DE , GOSH ).   One challenge of teaching your child to speak Spanish is helping her to pronounce the words correctly. Especially if you start when your child is older, but even if you start when they are young but they are immersed in an English-speaking culture, pronunciation in Spanish will inevitably present some difficulties.
