Early Speaking Skills

Speaking clearly and distinctly is important for everyone. You can help your child learn to speak clearly by providing a basic recording device to operate independently, either an older model cassette player that you are no longer strongly attached to (just in case!) or a simple digital playback machine. As they listen to their own voice, they'll receive good feedback about how clear they sound. Learning to hear sounds and reproduce them accurately is the first step towards learning to read. For the very youngest children, or those with some minor speech problems, blowing bubbles is an entertaining way to develop the muscles that are used for speech.
