May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

PARENTS: *Fast tip for encouraging your child’s language development

Instead of you always being the one reading books to your child, have your child tell the story by describing the pictures on each page.

So, the next time your child brings you their favorite book, say, “I want you to tell me the story.” Some children worry that they cannot read the words on the pages, but you can tell them that they can read the pictures.

P.M. Star of the Week
