two and not talking

My child is 2 years of age and not yet talking

You, the parents are the most important people in your child’s life and therefore his/her best language teacher. The first step with a non-verbal 2 year old is to establish a connection. Find out how and why your child communicates and what he likes to communicate about. The Hanen* principle of OWL: Observe, Wait and Listen will help you establish joint attention with your child which is the first step to language learning.

HINT

  • Follow your child’s lead
  • Make more comments and ask fewer questions
  • Emphasize key words
  • Have fun with your child!

A speech pathologist can help you with these strategies.
