Resources and Suggestions for Parents

It is very helpful to practice at home. It is best to practice a little every day.  Practicing for a short time every day will be more manageable and beneficial than practicing for a long time one day a week.  Research shoes that distributed practice (try 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night) is better than mass practice (such as an hour a week). 

To achieve distributed practice more easily, try to incorporate daily practice into activities you already do - such as homework and play.  In this folder are some suggestions for home speech and language practice using curricular materials and fun games.  Remember that a good, clear model from a grown-up will help. 

Have fun!
