St. Patty's Day and Early Descriptive Language Learnng

St. Patrick’s Day is all about leprechauns, pots of gold and colorful rainbows. 

But did you know that there is little need to talk about COLORS with your child who is deaf or hard of hearing?  

Once your child uses COLORS to describe they become the easy go-to adjective.

A red apple, the yellow sun, a green frog… 

Children easily learn the colors and then commonly over-use color words in their spoken language learning.

Rather model, expand and talk with your child by describing how the frog hops, has big eyes and can swim in the water.


Isn't this more language-rich than describing the frog is green?
