9 Tips To Teach Your Toddler To Talk

1. Teach your toddler in 2-word pieces: any more than 2 words your child has stopped listening to you.

2. Make the most times when she wants something the most.

3. Make him ask for everything!

4. After a whole, start stringing two-word phrases together to make sentences.

5. Make exaggerated moth movements she can SEE.

Examples of Daily Speech Development Tips

6. When you are carrying her around and she gets squirmy, don’t just put her down. Make her ask for it. Say: “Say, Get. (pause for 2 seconds) Down.” Offer big praise when she makes any attempt to say two words, then let her down.

7. When she wants her sippy cup of milk in the morning and she is reaching for the counter and grunting for you to hand it to her, say: “Say, “Cup. (pause for 2 seconds) Please.” Offer big praise when she asks and give her the cup.

8. Do #6 and #7 – not 2 or 3 times throughout the day, but ALL-DAY LONG. It takes very little extra effort on your part and the return on investment with your child’s speech is huge!

9. Before handing your child a toy, emphasize the consonant sound that the toy starts with or the sound that it makes if applicable. For instance, if you are handing your son his favorite toy truck, say: “Trucks go Vvvvrrrmm Vvvrrrmm! Say, Vvvrrrmm. Vvvrrrmm.” Once he’s made a solid attempt to make the vroom sound, give him the toy.
