Activites to do with your Child

     “Shoebox”      Shoe box

* Use a small box with a large slit in the top. A shoebox with a non-detachable lid is my favorite.

* Sit diagonally from the child at a table.

* Use a set of pictures or flashcards that include things such as people the child knows, favorite items or toys, or things the child uses in their daily life.

* Be sure the picture has only one item for the child  to identify.

* Show the child the picture and repeat the item or person’s name three times.

* Prompt the child to put the picture in the shoebox.

* Eliminate any pictures or flashcards that have more than two syllables or items the child is not likely to be familiar with.

* Even if your child or client does not talk yet, you are still working on a variety of important interactions.
