What are the methods of teaching a child to speak?

Ways to teach a child to speak:

If you think that you will start teaching your child to speak months or a year after his birth, you are wrong! In fact, you should start teaching the child to speak from birth, according to the following steps:

From 0 to 6 months:

  • Hold your baby close and look at him as you talk to him or sing to him. Babies love faces and will watch and respond when you speak.
  • Repeat the sounds your baby makes and then listen to him. This teaches your baby to listen and take turns in a conversation.

From 6 to 12 months:

  • Point to objects and call them by their names, for example, "Look at a dove." This will help your child to learn vocabulary,
  • Find books with your child You don't have to read the whole story, just talk about what you can see.

From 12 to 18 months:

  • If your child is trying to pronounce a word but says it incorrectly, say the word correctly. For example, if he points to a bird and says a foula, for example, reply to him, “Yes, it is a bird.” But do not criticize them, make fun of their words, or even tell them that they have misspoken.
  • Enrich your child's vocabulary by giving him options such as, "Do you want an apple or a banana?".

From 18 to 24 months:

  • Repeat the words, for example, "Where are your shoes?", "Are you wearing blue shoes today?" and "Let's put your shoes on." Repetition helps your child remember the words.
  • Use simple instructions like "eat with your spoon" or "close the door" Keeping the instructions short and simple will help your child understand them.
  • Ask your child about things like where is your eye? And let your child point to it and say yes, this is your eye, then ask him what is this and point to the eye and so on.

Limit your child's daily TV time to no more than 30 minutes for children under 24 months of age. From 2 to 3 years:
  • Help your child build sentences Your child will start saying simple sentences at the age of two. Try to respond with sentences that are a few words longer.
  • Grab his attention by saying his name at the beginning of a sentence and give him time to answer your question.
  • Turn off the television and radio so that your child can listen to you well.
  • Babies this age love to help. Talk to them about what you're doing while you're doing chores like shopping, cooking, cleaning, and sharing the work.
