Looking for a handout for parents about playing with their child to build language skills?Building Language with Toys and Play is meant to be a starting point for knowing how to use toys to build your child’s receptive and expressive language skills.

The ‘old-fashioned,’ pre-technology toys are often some of the best toys for developing language skills, because they are more open ended and require some action or interaction.

The examples provided list ideas for building receptive language (understanding) and expressive language (spoken output or use of AAC system)

The following are covered: Stages and purpose of play, what type of toys to buy/use, how to think about what language skills to work on, and some examples for specific toy types.
