Using Visuals to Support Speech & Language
Visuals are an excellent tool to aid in understanding when targeting new skills! Visuals provide extra support for children to process verbally presented information when targeting speech and language skills. Visuals can be used in a variety of ways to enhance speech and language skills. Here are a few different ways that visuals can be used to support speech and language!
Use a picture of a mouth making your child’s target speech sound or look in a mirror with your child while practicing target sounds.
Visual sentence starter
Use a visual sentence starter to support an increase your child’s sentence/phrase length when requesting, describing or asking a question.
Create a visual schedule to represent your child’s daily routine to allow them to anticipate what will happen throughout their day.
