What is “self-talk”?

In Speech-Language Pathology, “self-talk” is a technique to promote your child’s speech and language development.  To use “self-talk” at home, narrate what your child is seeing, hearing, touching, or doing out loud.  Speak to your child’s level (keep it simple!), and don’t expect your child to reply.  For example, as your child is making and eating breakfast “pour milk” or “mmmm, eating cereal”.  If you want to learn more, contact Cogwheel Clinic today!
