Talk. Sing. Read. Write. Play. | Oakland Public Library
Describe the things in their environment that they can feel, hear, smell and taste. Ask questions.
Respond to what your child says. After asking a question, silently count to ten to give them plenty of response time.
Talk. Sing. Read. Write. Play.
For example, while reading the well-loved folktale, Stone Soup , have real objects from the story ready for your child to explore —a soup pot, a stone, an onion, a carrot, salt and pepper and more! Using real objects to reinforce key ideas while reading benefits all children, particularly children with developmental disabilities.
