Working Speech and Language Into Daily Routines

Many of the parents I work with tell me that they don’t feel like they have enough time to work on speech and language skills with their child as much as they know they should.  This is a very common problem for busy families (and really, what family isn’t busy these days??).

One solution to this problem is to work speech and language practice into your daily routines.  There are tons of fun ways that you can improve speech and language skills without making drastic changes to your daily routines or trying to squeeze one more block of time into your day.

Working on speech and language skills during daily routines also has the added bonus of helping your child generalize these skills more quickly.  When you work on speech and language skills in an isolated setting (such as sitting down at the table for speech time or during speech therapy), the child learns first to do the skill there and then later learns to use that skill in his daily life.  However, if you teach the skill in his daily routine first, he is more likely to retain that skill and be able to use it in real life more quickly.
