In previous blogs I've talked a lot about visual support. Flashcards are one of the popular ways therapists, teachers and therapists 'teach' children new words.
It is really important that children are the right age (at least age 2) and that the pictures are high quality coloured photographs - as these are the easiest for children to understand (after the real thing).
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Keisha Shah who owns a lovely little company called Teddo Play www.teddo-play.com.
Keisha is a mum to a 3 year old and has created a range of high quality, play based educational learning sets for children, all with real life images - no strange looking cartoons in sight! The sets come in packs that grow with children and can used in a wide variety of ways.
I love Teddo-Play's flashcards for my own children and for therapy sessions as I know I will be able to use them for years to come!
Keisha has been super kind in offering Speech Mum viewers 10% off all of her products using the code 'speechmum' at the checkout!
If you're not sure if flashcards are right for you? These perfectly imperfect sets are an absolute bargain: https://www.teddo-play.com/product-page/perfectly-imperfects-taster-packs
If you've been using flashcards as a method of supporting speech I would love to hear from you!
As always, I am here to offer free advice, reassurance and guidance if you have concerns about your child's speech. Just pop me a message here.
