Speech Practice Video for Toddlers and Babies - Speech Delay Toddler - Learn To Talk Videos
This speech practice video for toddlers and babies encourages children to learn to talk. If your child has a speech delay, consult your pediatrician and a speech therapist. This video includes tips from Chatterbox NYC speech therapists. Rachel, who is in the video, is not a speech therapist. This video is for toddlers, babies and has information for parents and caregivers. It focuses on speech and language development. Gestures and imitation are important in the development of speech and language. Pretend play and taking turns are also important. This speech video also uses simple songs to help practice gestures and imitation. In our educational videos for toddlers, gestures, speech, and creative play are practiced.

Other tips you may find helpful:
Hold a toy that turns on, pops up, lights up etc away from the child. Say, “Ready, set…” and then if they make any sound, make the toy work. Then say, “YAY! You said “GO” If they cannot make any sounds, make the toy work when they look at you. This teaches them the power of their voice and communication. Don’t say, “No, say, Go” if they say “eh” or “ah” You want them to know that using their voice helps them get things! Any sound is celebrated!
If your child is late on the milestone of pointing, you can help shape their hand into a point and have them point at something they want. Then give them the item the want.
To teach the sign for more, you can give the child a little of their favorite food. Then say, “Do you want MORE?” and do the sign for more. Help them (hand over hand) do the sign for more. Then give them a little more of the food. Repeat many times.
You can put a toy in a clear container with a cover so they have to ask for help getting it.
You can put toys on tall shelves so they need to point and ask for the toy.
You can sing songs with gestures and dance moves and encourage them to imitate.
You can practice taking turns by doing things like stacking blocks and saying “YOUR TURN” then saying “MY TURN” and putting on a block
You can slow down and simplify your words. Talk louder.
You can also practice hand over hand with the gestures like doing the gestures of the wheels on the bus.
