CSP Spotlight: Help Your Child Learn Talk, Read, and Sing Together Every Day

You can help your child’s language skills by talking, reading, and singing with him or her every day. It’s easy to do and can make a big difference in how your child learns and grows!  It’s never too early to start talking, reading, and singing with your baby. 

Here are a few tips on helping your child to learn:

  • Respond to your baby’s first smiles, gurgles, and coos — she’s talking to you and wants you to talk, too!
  • Hold and talk to your baby; smile and be cheerful while you do.
  • Read books to your baby every day. Praise him when he babbles and “reads” too.
  • When you read with your child, have her turn the pages. Take turns labeling pictures with your child.
  • Describe what your baby is looking at; for example, “red, round ball.”

Community Service Programs of West Alabama (CSP), Inc.’s Head Start/Early Head Start, Child Care Partnership, and Early Intervention programs engage families and encourage healthy lifestyle choices. Safe and healthy children are ready to learn and explore their world.
