Here’s how doing these 4 things every day nurtures your child’s language skills: Routines allow for repeated exposure to language during a natural, structured activity, like bath time, bedtime, or mealtime. Reading interactively combines listening to language with visuals, which supports comprehension. Reading also helps children build vocabulary, follow a sequence, predict elements of a story, and understand character development. Using signs and gestures supports language and communication skills. Narrating everyday life by commenting on what you or your child are doing or seeing is a great way to model vocabulary and how to use language.
