Mobile devices have only been around for a relatively short period of time, but they have changed the way we do many of our daily tasks, as well as allow us to do things that we have not been able to do in the not so distant past. There are hundreds of thousands of APPS available at our fingertips, many of which are very useful in helping us to be more productive, to communicate, and even to learn new information.

Kids are constantly learning new words. Preschool children learn new vocabulary in their day to day interactions. School aged children learn new concepts, ideas, and subjects every day, with a vocabulary that goes right along with it. Children are usually able to learn new words quickly, but when a child has a specific language impairment, learning new vocabulary is often more difficult for him or her.

One of the first things we can do when we are trying to help a child learn new language is to play with them. We need to get down to their level and follow their lead. This means placing our own agenda aside for a time, and getting into their world. Following a child’s lead means going along with what they are doing, and allowing them to take the story where they want it to go. It is so easy to try and push our own ideas and agenda on a child.

Routines are an important part of our lives. They can provide stability and comfort. Routines are especially important for the development of children. When children have daily routines they know what to expect each day and they are less likely to have anxiety about the future.
