Speech Therapy Reno, Sparks, Carson City and the surrounding areas summer fun tips from Silver State Speech Therapy!  Summer is in full swing in Northern Nevada, bringing with it in influx of glorious outdoor activities. Whether you’re lounging in the sun, splashing in beautiful Lake Tahoe, or enjoying a popsicle while running through a sprinkler, there’s no denying that there’s nothing quite like the lazy days of summer.

If your child is receiving in-home speech therapy, you may find yourself distracted by summer activities and less likely to follow-through with speech and language strategies outside of therapy. However, never fear! There are endless ways to incorporate your speech therapy goals into everyday enjoyable activities. Your kids may not even realize that they are practicing! If your Speech-Language Pathologist is targeting certain sounds, incorporate them into fun and engaging summer activities!

There are many clients working on the challenging /s/ sounds, so why not “splash splash splash” in the pool, talk about “swimming” at one of Reno’s many pools, or yell “stop” and go while “sprinting” through the “sprinkler”. Talk about how delicious and “sticky” that popsicle is or “smash” water balloons against the sidewalk. Who says that speech therapy has to be boring?? If your little one is working on expanding their vocabulary and following directions, why not take a beautiful nature walk and use language to describe the colors of the trees and flowers, the actions of the bugs and birds, and all of the sounds and smells. Target following multi-step directions during a game of “Simon Says” in the woods or at your local park in Reno or Sparks.

A qualified and creative Speech and Language Pathologist can help facilitate engaging and productive activities that will feel more like fun and less like “work”. One of the benefits of in-home speech therapy is that it doesn’t necessarily have to be in the “home”, it can also occur in another community location. Summer is the perfect time to practice developing a language-rich environment that will excite and inform everyone involved!
