Hello everyone, I'm a first-time parent and I'm seeking some advice on how to encourage my child's language and communication development. My child is currently 18 months old and I have noticed that their communication skills are not developing as fast as I had hoped. They are able to make some basic sounds and understand a few words, but they are not yet able to communicate their needs and wants effectively. I'm worried that this may be a sign of a communication delay and I want to take proactive steps to help my child. What are some strategies that I can use to support my child's language and communication development? Are there any specific toys or activities that you would recommend? Thanks in advance for your help!
