Starting to Communicate:
No Tech Ideas:
- Your child can share information with others using a small photo album and Post It Notes. Put photos of events that your child wants to share with others into the album along with supporting remnant information, including ticket stubs, brochures and labels. Write specific information on the Post It Notes (“ Mom, Dad and I went to Marine Land. The penguins were my favourite.”) Add a question to encourage interaction (“What did you do this summer?”).
- Record a sequence of messages on a Step-by-Step so your child can chat on the first day of school (“Hello again. How was your summer? What was your favourite part? Wanna know what I did? I went to the cottage with my family. We went swimming and hiking. It was awesome!”).
