Verbalizing Along with Story Telling

“Tell Me A Story”

  • Read your child books over and over again.  Leave out certain parts to see if he notices.  Pause, and look at your child, to prompt a response.
  • Change the story slightly.
  • Call the characters by the wrong names.
  • Point to the pictures in the book and describe what is going on.
  • Make up your own stories and characters.  Include your child’s friends and family members.  Prompt him to give input and include it in the story.
  • Pause during the course of the story, giving your child a chance to talk.  If he does not respond, elicit a response by asking a question, than model the response if necessary.
