As the local epidemic situation remains severe, to protect Brighten's therapists and clients, and to reduce the flow of people and social contact in the community as much as possible, the following arrangements are currently in place:

1. Individual in-person services are provided with limited capacity. All parents are encouraged to switch to online sessions. Pair-up and group sessions will continue to be suspended.
2. Our therapists will be arranged to work from home for days that there are no in-person sessions. Work hours at the centre are also flexible, hence there may not be anyone to answer the telephone sometimes. Please feel free to leave us a message or contact us by WhatsApp at 2786-1611.
3. All therapists will use the rapid antigen tests at home daily to monitor their health conditions. Therapists have to successively obtain negative test results before reporting to work at the centre.

We will closely monitor the situation and review the above arrangements in about 2 weeks. Take care!

因應疫情非常嚴峻,為保護本中心的治療師及學生,並減少社區的人流和社交接觸,本中心正採取以下措施:
1. 提供有限度面授服務,建議所有家長盡量改至網上授課。小組課程將繼續暫停。
2. 治療師盡量留在家中工作,只會在有面授課程才會回中心。因上班時間彈性,如未能致電本中心,請留言或以WhatsApp 2786-1611與我們聯絡。
3. 為監察各人健康狀況,治療師會每天在家進行快速測,取得陰性測試結果後才可回中心上班。

以上安排暫定實行兩星期,本中心會繼續密切留意疫情發展,適時檢視情況。

Research shows that:
🔎 The parts of the brain that control movements for speech are different from those that control nonspeech movements in NSOMEs
🔎 NSOMEs are IRRELEVANT to speech improvements

Our advice:
💡 Making progress with NSOMEs is not relevant with making progress with speech sounds
💡 If children need to improve speech, then they MUST work on speech
💡 NSOMEs probably won’t do harm to a child, but why not spend the time on practising the actual sounds?

Online information should be taken with a pinch of salt and the best would be to consult a speech-language therapist if you have any questions!

Building toys are great for promoting creativity and imagination, but they are also great for developing language and communication skills!

🧱 Early words and vocabulary
• When you place a block on top of another, say ‘up’, ‘more’, or ‘on’
• When the tower is built, say ‘ready, steady ... DOWN!’
• You can have possession of the blocks and encourage your child to ask for more by saying ‘more’ or ‘please’

🧱 Basic concepts
• Talk about colours, shapes, sizes and locations

🧱 Social and attention skills
• Spend quality time with your child on the same activity for bonding
• Follow your child’s lead and copy what they are building
• Take turns putting a block on the tower
• Discuss what to build and work together! Could be a house for Peppa Pig, a carriage for a horse, or even a dinosaur

For older kids who outgrow basic blocks/bricks? Try Lego sets!

🧱 Following instructions
• Read the instruction manual together
• Find especially shaped pieces
• Follow the sequence and put the custom set together

What if they get bored of custom sets? Go back to the basics! Build anything in whatever way they want it!

Bubbles can be used to target many language goals! Below are some of my favourite ways of using bubbles:

🔆Preverbal skills
Practice action imitation. Parents can model the below actions for your child to imitate
- clap at the bubbles to make them pop.
- punch the bubbles with fists
- poke the bubbles with pointed index fingers

Encourage eye-contact. Parents can hold the bubbles next to your face and wait for the child to make eye-contact with you before blowing it.

🔆 Learn vocabularies
Bubbles are good for kids to learn verbs, adjectives and short phrases!
- Verbs: open, blow, pop
- Adjectives: big, small, wet, many
- 2-3 word sentences: “blow bubbles”, “I want bubbles”

🔆 Practice speech sounds
- /b/: Say “bubbles” or “blow”
- /p/: Say “pop”
- /m/: Say “more”

Research shows that:
🔎 All children are capable of learning MULTIPLE languages, including those with additional learning needs
🔎 Learning 2 languages DOES NOT cause confusion or language delay
🔎 Learning another language STRENGTHENS cognitive abilities

Our advice:
💡 Use the language that you feel most comfortable speaking with your child so they can get the best language model
💡 Try to introduce new languages as early as possible
💡 Be consistent with the language strategy you want to adopt, e.g., speaking mainly one language at home
💡 Do not use technology as a mode to teach your child another language. Playing songs and games is beneficial, but solely using them to teach a language is not advised

Learning multiple languages is a fun and exciting way of developing language and also allows children to have more opportunities to communicate within diverse cultures and communities.

[What is Teletherapy?]
• An alternative medium where therapists deliver services online via a live video platform
• Allows both parties to interact with each other and with the materials prepared by therapists
• Provides the continuation of your child’s therapy at home or in any quiet environment with good internet connection
• Is fun, exciting, engaging and extremely child-friendly (which child doesn’t like learning on screens?)
• Is as effective as face-to-face therapy according to research!

[Who can benefit from teletherapy?]
• Children who have been receiving face-to-face therapy for speech sounds, language skills, fluency, social communication, etc.
• Parents and caregivers who seek coaching and support

Each child is unique and has different strengths and needs. It would be best to talk to your speech therapist to determine whether teletherapy is suitable for your child.

Research indicates that about 20-30% of children who are late to talk (otherwise developing typically) DO NOT grow out of their language delay on their own.

There is currently no way of identifying which Late Talkers will continue to struggle with language development. While 70–80% of Late Talkers may seem to catch up to their peers by the time they start school, they may continue to have subtle difficulties with language and literacy skills.

Our advice:
💡DO NOT go for a ‘wait and see’ approach. It’s NEVER too early to seek help!
💡The earlier a child with delay gets support, the better the outcome will be

Early language intervention makes a big difference to a child who needs it!

⭐️Research shows that we only use 7% of our communication through words, but 93% through non-verbal communication, e.g., gesture, tone of voice
⭐️Teaching a child the use of gestures or pictures can help eliminate frustrations for your child, as they can use another mode of communication to express their wants and needs
⭐️Using both pictures and sign language will also develop your child’s attention and cognitive skills
⭐️More modes of language input can result in a better chance for your child to learn and take in language

Toy cars are one of children’s favorite toys! How can they be used to facilitate young children’s language learning?

🔆 Build communication temptation
Put the cars in a zip bag or transparent container that your child cannot reach or open. Have your child make a request to get or open it, which could be a question, a word or a gesture (e.g., pointing)

🔆 Create verbal routines & play with sounds
Parents can model vehicle sounds (e.g., “beep beep”, “vroom vroom”, “honk honk”) and short phrases (e.g., “ready, set, go”, “stop the car”, “push the car”)

🔆 Expand vocabularies
Cars have many associated words that are good for children to learn
- Part/whole relationships: wheels, doors, windows, trunk
- Nouns: types of vehicles (e.g., race car, van, taxi)
- Verbs: go, push, stop
- Adjectives: fast, slow, big, small, red, shiny, clean

🔆 Develop social skills
Playing with 1 car at a time is a great way to learn turn-taking and sharing
- Initiate a turn: Practise saying “Your turn” or passing the toy car to adult
- Wait for turn: Practise waiting while adult takes the turn
- Receive a turn: Practise saying “My turn” or receiving the toy car from adult

The first few years of childhood are considered critical window for language development. Specifically, children learn language through social interactions with others. Screen time CANNOT replace the social interactions that are required for language learning and communication. Every minute spent on looking at a screen is a missed opportunity for parent-child interaction!

Our advice:
💡Minimize the use of electronic devices
💡Under 2 years: NO screen time; 2-5 years: Limit screen time to 1 hour/day
💡When screen time is unavoidable (a big IF!), select shows with good language input, watch them together with your child, and talk about them to initiate conversations

Social interactions packed full of quality language input is the key to early language success!

We trust you wash your hands regularly, but are you doing it right? 🤔

Make sure you use soap 🧼 and wash:
🙌🏻 Palms
🙌🏻 Back of hands
