Living in the Moment.

It’s a hustling and bustling life. You pack the lunches, set out the outfits, keep your ear out for the morning news, all while keeping tabs on your children. You’re grabbing your coffee, loading your car for your lengthy commute and you’re coming to the realization that you’re just “going through the motions”. When was the last time you felt present in the moment?

 

Are you finding yourself waking up tired even with an adequate 8 hours of sleep? Did you notice the busy birds dancing over the street lights above you? Mindfulness is the ability to live in the present moment and focusing your attention to a specific task.  It’s a state of being that you should feel perfectly content with- living right here, right now, accepting that and moving on.

 

When we practice mindfulness we aren’t only improving our attitudes and behaviors but in conjunction with our physical and psychological well-being. Our Clinician Miss Rachel is all about mindfulness.  Take a look at how it’s helping Issac to engage in his therapy exercises!  We’re #NotYourAverageClinic.

Bilinguistics.com

Bilinguistics.com is a great website for speech therapy resources!  After reading one of their articles, your average car ride will metamorphosis into a opportunity for speech and language advancement!  Driving down the highway, stopping at stop signs, braking for pedestrians…these situations can all be utilized to practice vocabulary, descriptions and even sentence structuring!

 

· Try to illustrate the vehicle beside you in detail. What does it looks like? Are the tires big or are the tires small? Describe vehicles you see on the road in vivid words (e.g., shiny blue jeep, fast green motorcycle, noisy car).

· Always speak using complete sentences- this will assist your child in describing what they see when riding in the car (e.g., “I see a truck with smoke,” “I see a horse on the grass”).

Do you have questions regarding your child’s speech and language skills? Contact us today and see how we can provide the means to achieve. We’re #NotYourAverageClinic.

Play can be fun AND educational

There are numerous opportunities we can invent for speech and language development during playtime. Your kiddo is able to play with their favorite toy and in turn, you can support their speech and language development. Below are just a few brainstorms to help your child’s development during play:

 

· Try tossing a ball back and forth between you and your child. Signal to them/ let them know “It’s mommy’s turn” or “Can I have the ball now please?” to show examples of taking turns.

· Take all your children’s toys and place them in an area that is easily accessible to you but out of reach for your child. If he/she wants to play, have them ask for the specific toy they would like to play with. If they want a race car, ask them to say the words “I want race car”.

· Next time you are cleaning up- try naming each piece as you pick it up. Try using the same phrase each time. For example: “Put away brush.” “Put away cars.” “Put away batman.”

If you’re wondering about your child’s speech and language development, contact us today! (702) 979-4268
