#391 Prelinguistic Skill #6 Plays Appropriately with a Variety of Toys Course Description

In this one-hour audio and video podcast,  ASHA CEU Course #391 Prelinguistic Skill #6 Plays Appropriately with a Variety of Toys, we’re explaining in detail Skill #6 Learning to Play with a Variety of Toys Appropriately. This milestone means that a child explores new toys, likes to play, uses his or her little body to manipulate toys, and is learning through play with lots of different toys. At this developmental level, we’re looking for the most basic kind of functional play with any common toy or a very familiar object. This means that a child uses an item in the way it’s intended. We’re not discouraging creativity or free play, but we do want to see that a toddler understands how to use well-known items. Play is important for language development because play is a terrific and developmentally-appropriate way little kids learn (almost) everything! Children who don’t play with toys miss vital opportunities to acquire and practice and variety of skills, including language. Research tells us that many times, language is closely linked with a child’s play skills. Watch the course to learn strategies for helping toddlers with developmental delays learn to play with toys.

Learning Objectives
  1. Explain how play is linked with early communication skill development.
  2. Identify at least 5 strategies parents can use at home with toddlers with developmental delays to strengthen play skills
