Playing With Your Child

Playing games and interacting with your child helps them develop strong language and communication skills. Even young babies benefit from dad playing with little boy and play phoneplay time with parents!

Get Your Child's Attention:

  • Get involved with your child.

  • Get down to their physical level.

  • Sit face-to-face and make eye contact.

Encourage Your Child's Efforts:

  • Give your child time to respond.

  • Praise and reward all attempts and successes.
