Summer is here!
(Well, it is in the northern hemisphere, at any rate. For all of you down-under, we apologize for being a half-year off.)
Here are some things to think about for your child's TapToTalk as summer begins:
Going on vacation? How are you traveling? You may want to add pictures related to an airplane, train, boat or car trip. Or of the people or places you plan to visit. You could even set up an album just for trips.
Closer to home, it may be time to add pictures for the beach or the local pool or park. Or maybe summer camp. You could, for example, have pictures of the staff at your child's camp.
Do you have some communication goals for your child this summer? Perhaps you have discussed that with the teacher or SLP. How can you use TapToTalk to extend your child's communication capability this summer?
One TapToTalk Mom told us she started an album for the summer garden, with flowers, plants, vegetables, hose, rake, watering can, snails, and so forth.
These are just some thought-starters. Have a great summer!
