Speak to Me, Baby

Article Summary:

Reading and talking with your child is crucial for their language development, according to Dr. Jill Gilkerson, Director of Child Language Research at LENA. Try responding to your child’s noises, adding to what they say and do, and telling entire stories about books that aren’t necessarily on the page. Creating a habit of regular conversation with your child will help them to develop the skills they need to thrive.
