Summer is here and if you haven’t got your speech and language materials ready now is the time to do it. Some children start summer speech services in July, while others might go year-round. It is important to take advantage of the “summer theme” because it helps to build new vocabulary and relate activities the child may be currently participating into their speech and language goals. If they are not receiving summer services, it’s still important to maintain skills and promote language throughout the sunny season. Brainstorm a few summer themed activities or look here to get started.
