COPY AND ADD Such an easy language strategy to use to expand children's language skills. How to do it?
Repeat what they said and add another word on
- If they say one word, you say two

It is very important to look holistically at speech and language development which includes foundations such as attention and play skills. This is because they are precursor skills required to develop prior to another skill beginning to develop and strengthen.
This is a great visual I like to utilise with parents to show the hierarchy of communicative development at each of its stages and the importance of it.
