To help your infant or toddler to develop language skills, try these suggestions from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association:
Encourage your infant to make consonant-vowel sounds such as ma, da and ba.
When your child makes sounds, respond by speaking to your child and using eye contact.
Imitate your infant's laughter and facial expressions.
Encourage your infant to mimic your actions, such as clapping hands, throwing kisses and playing finger games such as pat-a-cake and peek-a-boo.
