Are there computer technologies or apps that would help my toddler communicate?

You are your child’s best teacher!  Talking through your day, singing, imitating sounds and expressions, and reading are all great ways to spend time together. There are many options for technology and while many are “good,” there is no substitute for you.  If your child is receiving services, the child’s speech language pathologist may recommend some apps that will help with your child’s specific communication needs.  If so, be sure to know how often and how to best to use them.  Visit the American Academy of Pediatrics at aap.org for screen time guidelines.
