let her watch kids programs astro disney junior channel or xiaotaiyang

Hai,

Thank for your reply; suggestion; opinion.

My niece 3+ year just can talk some simply general word such as mum, dad, eat, toilet, no, yes...

Mostly she understand what we talk & she do understood something to be done. Just can't express

in word to be understand; she need to be more focus....

Hi,

You can try to tempt her.

l

For example: If she likes chocolate, hold the chocolate in front of her and teach her to say "eat" or "chocolate". If "Chocolate" is too big of a word for her, you can teach her just "ch" and then slowly do "cho", "Choco", and then "Chocolate".

Everything and anything that she reaches for like toys, or even for her to be picked up, you must expect language. So if she wants you to pick her up, expect her to say "up" and then when she says "up" by herself you give her up. If you do this everyday with her, and expect language for everything, her speech would improve.

Also, What do you mean by she needs to focus?

Thanks

Tina Dass

Try simple sign language with speech.

They become more confident with what they say when they are understood by the adults. Plus, it's easier to learn when one doesn't just rely on one sense (sound) to learn. Using speech and sign language together reinforces learning as they learn by both sight and sound (same with adults actually). Begin with simple, common words like "sleep", "eat", "drink", "milk", and so on, and then slowly expand the vocabulary, and eventually grammar. Never pressure them otherwise it defeats the purpose of building confidence.

Yes, it's a misconception that sign language is only for the deaf/mute. I've taught my kid (who is perfectly fine) sign language when she was younger, and now she's a chatterbug with anyone at all. She'll be 5 this year. :)

P.s. - The adult should also participate in the learning process by learning sign language and doing as well. Toddlers learn from their role models pretty quick. :D

What about suggesting to your niece's parents' to teach her to read which will help her with her speech/talking? There are some short videos from proud parents on their toddlers as young as 2 years who could read beyond their age. Reading has helps the toddlers to improve on their vocabulary and general knowledge. In fact, they began to like reading will pick a book to read by themselves.

Perhaps should take her to a speech therapist or any related specialist to check that there is no medical issues here.

If all is okay, every night read a story book or go through a picture book with her. If she finds it interesting, she might be curious to know more and start to communicate. We should read clearly and slowly so that she can capture the pronounciation and it helps to inject some enthusiatic expressions when reading aloud the story.

During car rides, can point out and state clearly the objects along the journey and get her to repeat it. Can play simple games and reward her if she gets the word right.

All the best.
