  • Be open to changing how you talk to a child. Keep your language simple most of the time.
  • Stay together and talk directly to a toddler as often as possible about what she’s doing.
  • Focus on teaching words a child to understand words he can use during everyday activities –
    not academic words like shapes, colors, letters, and numbers.
  • Avoid apps and screens to teach language. Toddlers learn best by DOING!
  • Emphasize important words by repeating them and including them at the ends of phrases.
  • Give him clues or “cues” when she doesn’t understand. “Tell her, show her, help her.”
  • Allow plenty of time for a child to respond.
  • Set up frequent opportunities throughout the day for a child to demonstrate that he understands. Teach a child to “do her part.”
  • Have fun! Don’t make all your requests serious. Ask for a kiss, a hug, or silly requests too!

#392 Prelinguistic Skill #7 Understands Familiar Words and Follows Directions Course Description

In this one-hour audio and video podcast, we’re explaining in detail Skill #7 Understands Familiar Words and Follows Directions. Speech-language pathologists refer to this skill as receptive language or how a child understands what he hears. Kids learn how to understand words before they learn to use words to communicate. When a toddler has difficulty following directions, we know that he will have difficulty learning to talk. Many times parents overestimate what a child truly understands. The ONLY way we know that a child is comprehending is by paying attention to how he responds when we talk to him. If a toddler does not complete verbal requests by 18 months, it is very likely that he has a receptive language delay. Even a mild delay in a child’s ability to understand and process language can result in a cascade of other developmental issues. Watch this show,  ASHA CEU Course #392 Prelinguistic Skill #7 Understands Familiar Words and Follows Directions, for ways therapists and parents can help toddlers improve their receptive language skills.

Learning Objectives
  1. Explain how receptive language delays impact expressive language development.
