To start the development of speech, there are a couple of simple ways.

DANY invites children from 1 to 2 years old to the school of early development, to the course: “My first words.”

The course starts on February 2nd. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:00. Pre-registration is required.

How can you help your child start talking?

The first words of the child and even the usual sounds of “ba-ba” and “yes-yes” make every mommy proud of him! The whole family begins to look for meaning in them, and vigorously discuss the various meanings of these words. However, in many cases the child finds it difficult to develop his vocabulary on his own, and he continues to utter slurred phrases up to two years. What’s wrong? How to help?

For the development of spoken language , the child needs the help of parents. The process of speech development is quite complex and multi-stage. On its own, articulation cannot help your baby start speaking. In the case of a short frenulum or malocclusion, the child is already taken care of by specialists.

It is also important to strive to talk as much as possible, even with a two-month-old baby, as this has a positive effect on his subsequent perception and on the ability to share his own feelings.

At the age of six months, the child is already gaining a passive set of words. In fact, a “bird” language in a 2-year-old baby arises due to the inability to choose the necessary words to describe his thoughts. It is a mistake to think that if your baby has not learned to point to the eyes of his favorite toy, then the child does not know where they are located. Children absorb more information than we can imagine, but they do not yet have a “coordination – speech” connection. For example, if a child sees a ball, he will grab it with his hands immediately, but it is difficult to convince him to bring the ball if it is with other toys. At the heart of this is the inability to concentrate and collect attention. And the parent thinks that the child simply does not know what the ball looks like! In such cases, many put off communication with the baby for a while, which is a huge mistake. The child must be stimulated to communicate and repeat actions several times, talking about them. The key rule is to use a calm voice, use cheerful poems, and take your time.

If everything is done correctly, efforts will not be wasted and the child’s speech will improve before your eyes.

To start the development of speech, there are a couple of simple ways.

Repetition is always helpful. Call out loud your actions, interior items, the actions of other people, say that dad or friends will come. The results will appear immediately.

It is also necessary to repeat the phrases spoken by the child. Saying “doo-doo-doo-doo” or “doo-doo-doo” or “do-do-do” at the same time with the baby is quite interesting and entertaining. You can also compose a simple song for a child. Such an educational game is an excellent device for training speech.

The development of fine motor skills also contributes to the improvement of speech, since the parts of the brain responsible for controlling movements and controlling speech are closely related.

For tying shoelaces, of course, it’s too early. For this game, you need to use objects of various shapes (round, rough, ribbed, soft, sticky). Better to be as varied as possible. It is widely known that for many children, typical jars, lids, spoons, boxes are more interesting than expensive educational mats or games. Colorful buttons attached to a thread are very popular. Such a product can be sorted out like a rosary, giving the child a choice!

It is best not to use sign language if the child is over a year old. It is necessary to teach him speech and try not to respond to typical baby gestures (for example, stretching out pens). Over time, make the phrases more difficult – “Say, mom, give me a pear”, instead of “give”. It’s also worth exploring “please” and “thank you.”

Extreme interest in children arises when imitating animals.

Interact with already speaking peers or with older children. Children will imitate them, which will help develop their own vocabulary (vocabulary).

Sing, even if you can’t hear or have a voice. If you change or confuse the lyrics, the child will not be able to resist making corrections, which will help him develop.

Rhythmic and easy to grasp rhymes will be great fun and learning for your baby. They need to be re-read 5-10 times, the child will be happy to listen to them. Play as if you forgot something (some interesting place in the verse) and the child, over time, will begin to complement you.

Do not neglect your child’s attempts to tell you something interesting. You need to listen to him carefully and look into his eyes. You need to imitate surprise, defeat, ask the baby again. Over time, your child will try to tell you about everything he sees or hears. It will be extremely productive to tell stories about what he did on a walk (feed the birds, whom he met, and so on). The person being told needs to constantly assent and look surprised.

It is better not to use electronic toys in the game with a child (one – one and a half years). He turns into a passive participant in the game, watching her. This inhibits the development of fantasy. The child begins to think that he cannot influence the development of the game in any way, except by pressing a button. Use balls, cars, pyramids, nesting dolls and similar toys.

What prevents a child from developing speech?

For the little ones, this is, first of all, a constant sound (or, rather, noise) background, which is created by the TV, beloved in many families.

Incorrect word patterns in the form of the already mentioned “lisping”.

For more conscious children, these are frequent comments and corrections. Of course, no one likes the feeling of being wrong! Therefore, when a child is constantly made to understand that he says “wrong”, then she will choose the easiest way to “correct” – silence.

The psychological atmosphere in the family, where the child is limited in many ways. In other words – constant “no”.

What helps?
The joyful reaction of parents to the sounds and efforts of the child.

Consideration of books, objects with clear large drawings. Moreover, the drawings for the smallest should be, so to speak, solo: one page – one subject.

A universal assistant for the development of speech and, subsequently, writing is the development of fine motor skills of the hands. These are the usual activities for children: feeling objects of different consistency (water, sand, stones, grass), modeling from dough, plasticine, and even tearing paper.

It turns out that swings and motion sickness, which children love so much, are also very useful! The center of balance support in the brain is located near the center of speech development. Therefore, stimulating one leads to a more active work of the other.

Parents will help children by not avoiding complex words and sentences in communication; let the child always understand that she is also being listened to, that the mother is ready to change the subject, listen to the child’s questions.

For any age, it is certainly important to talk to the child as much as possible.

Some reasons delaying the start of broadcasting

The child communicates little with other children, in particular older ones. It is known that children are much better at adopting skills from their own kind. This also applies to language. If the child also communicates with elders, then she is also stimulated by the desire to improve and enrich the vocabulary.

Bilingual environment. Today this is not so uncommon. And this does not necessarily apply to marriages with foreigners. A combination of Russian and Ukrainian is enough. Children who hear different languages from their parents, or one from their parents and the other in a wider environment, begin to speak a little later. But there is also the plus of bilingualism! The brain of a child in such an environment works twice as productive.
Few new experiences. New experiences stimulate thinking and speech. The child badly needs new toys, walks to new places, etc.
