• Talking with your child.
• Playing with toys such as blocks, puzzles, dolls and puppets. When your child builds something or makes up a story, he strengthens his brain.
• Reading a book your child likes, even if it’s the same one over and over.
• Helping your child deal with disappointments. Your child will learn best after he gets a handle on his emotions. Remember, this is an ongoing process.
• Getting exercise. Use the warm summer months ahead to get out there and move with your child! Extra helpful are activities such as running and swimming, because opposite sides of the body move at the same time.
