When language skills are starting to develop, toddlers can't say what they want, feel, or need, and they get frustrated and start to act out and display behaviors to try and communicate. Behavior is their way of communicating.
Your role is to teach them how to be self-aware and communicate with words or gestures so they don’t melt into a tantrum. Communication is the key.
Emotional intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
In this video, Adrienne and Terra share how to get toddlers and children of all ages to talk and communicate their emotions and feelings in a clear, concise way. Using simple activities, parents, caregivers, teachers, and speech-language pathologists can learn how to help your toddler talk more and understand more language so that they can communicate better.
These tips are helpful so that they will be prepared for preschool, kindergarten, and life beyond the classroom. These are strategies for parents and speech-language pathologists that you can apply right away with your kids.
