Tune-up with Others

Help your child practice language skills and understand ideas during everyday life.

At the doctor’s office, talk together about the people, places, and things to expect. Assist your child in asking others when he wants to know more.

When visiting family, greet them and share new information together, ask questions, and listen and respond.

At the library, have your child tell about her interests or ask where to find information she is seeking.
