A parent's guide to creating language-rich environments

Welcome to the Talk Box! The Talk Box was put together by speech-language pathologists to share ideas about creating language-rich environments for preschool and school-age children.

Children learn language every day. Parents play an important role in their child's speech and language development. The Talk Box shares ideas and activities for creating language-rich environments. It has everyday tips, information about what to expect in speech and language development, when to get help, and where to get help. This information is shared in newsletters, activity sheets, and information sheets that parents and professionals can reproduce from this website.

The Talk Box consists of 2 boxes. One box is for preschool children from birth to 5 years and one box is for school-aged children from 5 to 12 years.

For more information on the Tal Box visit the Government of Alberta's website, or contact a staff member at the Family Connections Parent Link Centre.
