Singing and Expressive Language Development
Dr. Heather Zimmerman, Boys Town Pediatrics
Singing really helps with expressive language development. So singing is basically just another way of kind of showing that our voices go up and down when we communicate with them in addition to using words. The more that you can sing as you're just doing routine things, any activity that you're going to do, "this is the way we walk the stairs," anything you're doing just as you're doing them just sing the words and then they are associating that activity every time they do it with a little song which is really helping their language development as well.
As your toddler continues to grow, their language and speech will continue to expand. Dr. Heather Zimmerman, pediatrician with Boys Town Pediatrics, explains how singing and expressive language can help with toddler language development and how parents can continue to help expand the communication skills of their child.
