Early Intervention Speech Therapy Activities

Instructor: Abigail Cook
Keeping kids entertained and engaged is the key to effective speech therapy. Let's look at some ideas for planning early intervention speech therapy sessions for infants to three-year-olds.

Early Intervention and Speech Therapy

Research indicates that early intervention speech therapy should focus on several specific skills. Some of these skills include joint attention, turn taking, imitation, and play skills. Up to the age of three, children learn best through play. The majority of a speech therapy session for this age group will include playing with toys, singing, and games. Keep in mind that using a child's strengths and interests as a starting point will result in more excitement and engagement from the child.
