The language is one of the main work objectives for any speech therapist, since it has a relevant role in functions so important for the moment in which the child begins to make sounds and, later to speak and, of course also, in the feeding process (chewing and swallowing). Hence the importance that, as parents, we work from home this vital and necessary organ for the day-to-day life of our little ones. Here are four simple and fun steps to stimulate children's language from home.

Our goal with thesesimple proposals that we show you below is to stimulate the language to improve their sensitivity and thus facilitate their more active participation in all their functions, and without a well "educated" language we could not do things like tell a joke or have an ice cream.

Therefore, it may be useful in children with speech difficulties (that they articulate certain sounds badly) and dysfunctional swallowing, that is to say, children who spend a long time eating, who swallow almost without destroying the food or those whose food turns into a ball ... In any of the aforementioned cases, a speech therapist or pediatrician must be responsible to issue a more accurate diagnosis after several tests to the child.

For the next four steps of the proposal, we will only need the help of a small ear stick with their respective cottons at the ends. This swab can be soaked in cool water, in different flavors (acids like lemon or sweets like chocolate) or can be applied dry.

With the change in temperature and the flavors, the game will be much easier for the little ones, while in the dry the difficulty will be greater and there will be more training.

It is recommended that each of these small steps be considered as a game and fun time with children, it is even advisable to take advantage of the daily moments in which we are used to brushing our teeth, in front of the mirror and with our mouth open (for approximately no more than a minute or couple of minutes).

The proposal to follow consists of four steps, and in all of them the most important double exercise of the tongue, the elevation and the stimulation of the tip of the tongue, will be sought:

1. Sides
We caress the sides of the tongue from back to front towards the tip of the tongue, as shown in image 1.

2. Center
Gently stroke the center of the tongue from back to front, towards the tip of the tongue, as shown in image 2.

3. Bottom
We caress the lower part of the tongue, directly on the tongue and also on the floor of the mouth, watching over and respecting the frenulum, but also trying to raise it and raise the tongue towards the palate, as shown in image 3.

4. Touches
We give small touches on different points of the tongue and like a game, they have to point out where we have touched them.

These exercises will not take you long and the benefits you can get for the correct development of the child's speech and also for a correct swallowing are infinite. This activity is worth spending a little time on!
