Communication Development Activities

Dear Parents,

Please find some activities that you can use at home to promote your baby/toddler/child’s communication development.

Over the years I have used these activities in individual and group therapy sessions. These activities can be easily carried out at home as each activity is nice and short. You can do one, some or all of these activities. You may choose to do them daily or weekly, it’s completely up to you!

All you need for these activities is a little bit of space and toys/objects that you have in the house.

We are going to focus on eye-contact, naming, action songs, cause and effect and teaching some important songs.

You will find all of the information/instructions on the activity sheet.

Best of luck & Enjoy!!!!
