Using Verbal Prompts to Help Your Child’s Language Development  [Pediatric Speech Therapy,Developmental Delay]

 

Your child is increasing his or her language skills every day. Your child is learning how to use and understand language in order to request label objects and actions, answer questions, follow directions, and so much more! As your child is developing these important skills, here are some examples of verbal prompts you could use to provide more support if your child needs it.

Verbal prompts are spoken by you to help your child use or understand language better. For example, if your child is having troubling labeling an action in a storybook picture, ask your child “Is the baby sleeping or eating?” If your child is having difficulty labeling an object, ask your child, “Is this a spoon or a fork?” Another type of verbal prompt to use if your child is having difficulty labeling would be a phonemic prompt in which you provide part of the answer. “This is a ‘ffffff____’” (fork). 

If your child is having difficulty with following directions, a verbal prompt to use would be repeating the command or the portion of the command that is difficult. For example, if the command is “Put the ball in the box,” and your child picks up his ball and doesn’t complete the command, repeat “in the box” to offer additional support. 

Another type of verbal prompt would be offering clues to help your child think of the right word. For example, if your child is having trouble remembering what she ate for breakfast (cereal), you could say “You ate it with a spoon” to help. If your child is having difficulty remembering what animal he saw at the petting zoo (pig), you could say “It said ‘oink oink.’”
