Language-boosting strategies for everyday life

Word Boosting is far more than a collection of toddler activities. It is a systematic approach to encouraging young children to learn to talk, with chapters on the best strategies for boosting language skills in young children, the stages of baby and toddler language development, establishing great communication through daily routines, setting up a simple play schedule, the perfect toys for learning-filled play, and much more.

Promoting good language skills at an early age can help to build your child’s confidence and their ability to interact with the world. Achieving great communication with your child will strengthen your bond, and can help to ease the frustrations of the toddler years.

Ideas that work

Word Boosting draws together the knowledge linguists and speech pathologists have developed on what really helps little children learn language, and shows parents how to use that knowledge in daily life. Its practical, realistic and effective.

Word Boosting was born out of my own experience as a mother of two energetic boys. I left work as an academic researcher and teacher of language to care for my children at home full-time. I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity and the huge lessons it taught me. I had to learn a lot about how to play, how to communicate, and – let’s be honest – how to get through the day with two busy little boys born less than 18 months apart. I wanted activities that were simple, fun, safe and educational. Everything in the book has been toddler-tested; the ideas here really work.

Word Boosting is available on for Kindle, for just $5.99. That’s amazing value for a book with 365+ playtime activity ideas, enough for every day of the year, and a complete guide to helping your child learn to talk.

Equipping you to help your child

Word Boosting is for all parents and caregivers, but I wish to make a special mention of parents helping little ones who find learning to talk a challenge. Perhaps you want to assist your child in overcoming a language delay. Even if your child gets speech therapy, you’ll no doubt want to support the therapist’s work through simple techniques to use at home. What we do at home with our kids can have an amazing effect on their speech and language.

The strategies and activities in this book are tailored for you and your family, because I was also in your place, helping my older son overcome a speech delay. This book was born of that experience, as well as from the astonishment of witnessing my youngest’s wild charge into language. It is my sincerest hope for this book that it will help other families turn words from a struggle into a source of joy.

Whether you are seeking to improve your communication with your child, looking for fresh ideas for playtimes, trying to help a child who is struggling with language, or simply excited about your child’s journey into words and hoping to enjoy the process to the full, Word Boosting is packed with resources to get you and your child talking.
