Learning language in a natural environment is extremely important. Swimming is a great way to work with your little ones vocabulary skills. While swimming you can name body parts, colors on the pool toys and verbs such as swim, splash, jump, go. With all the fun your child is having in the pool, they will not even realize they are working on building their language skills. Thank you to Superpower Speech for putting together a great visual of a variety of words to focus on when swimming. Enjoy cooling off in the pool during these hot summer days. If you have any concerns about your child’s speech/language development give Laura Willoughby, at Communicate Therapy Services in Nampa, a call 208-466-9686.
