Activities to help develop your communication skills


Developing communication skills is important for young children for several reasons:

  • Allows children to be able to express themselves more clearly
  • Facilitates communication with others
  • Enhances a child’s social well-being and success in academics
  • Increases a child’s vocabulary

It’s important that when children are infants, they’re exposed to language so that they gain the skills to understand and express thoughts, feelings, and information. 

Here are some activities you can try at home to develop your child’s communication skills:

Infants: Sing songs and nursery rhymes 

Toddlers: Play “Name This Thing” – introduce them to new vocabulary by asking them to name something they see while driving in the car, in the grocery store, etc. 

Preschoolers: Create/tell a story with toys and puppets. 

School-Agers: Play telephone or show and tell.
