What can I do to Encourage my shy Child’s Expressive Language Skills?
Parents and other caregivers sometimes tend to converse less with shy children due to these children’s preference for limited social interaction. Instead, parents and others who interact with shy children should put forth extra effort to speak with shy children as much as possible. These increased attempts at communication can help shy children to develop their expressive language skills. Researchers also recommend that parents make increased efforts to arrange play dates between their shy children and compatible peers. This can help to bolster expressive language by building independence, confidence, and social skills.
