At Talking Matters we believe learning to communicate should be enjoyable for children and their families. In the next two blogs we’ve included lots of ideas on how these activities can be used to develop children’s skills while they think they are just having fun. The activities can be adapted and changed according to your child’s age and skill level and we have included ideas for toddlers, preschoolers and school age children.

Correct visual processing forms an important foundation for later skills such as reading, copying, writing, visual attention, concentration and word building abilities.
Playdough is a common children’s play activity which can be made or bought from the store. Playdough is a great tool for developing fine motor skills.
