“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Help me talk as I grow tall!”
Children enjoy looking at their reflection in the mirror. They learn to explore and become more aware of themselves. Place your child in front of a mirror. Observe his reactions and expressions. Replicate any sounds, words or actions he uses. Once your child becomes aware that you are imitating him, it is likely that he will continue it.
A mirror can be used to improve a child’s ability to imitate and model adults.
A mirror can improve a child’s awareness of oral -motor positioning.
A mirror can be FUN!
