Play is a fundamental facilitator towards children’s overall communication development. It offers important opportunities for them to discover, explore and learn increasingly creative and complex language through social interactions.
At Oasis Place, we use a wide range of toys and games to support children’s attention, social skills, comprehension, spoken language development and speech clarity. Learning is invariably more successful if it is fun and meaningful – and really, just plain fun – to the child. Children with difficulties in any of the above areas may not be able to fully participate and enjoy the games that their friends are playing. Speech and language therapists can share specific strategies to parents and caregivers to help them maximise their child’s communication potential through play.
We hope to share how we use some of our favorite toys
and games to facilitate speech and language development. Please contact our centre
for more information on obtaining these games.
