When you sing and rhyme, your baby knows it's learning time!
Singing is such an important activity for helping your child with hearing loss learn to listen and talk. Did you know you can turn everyday moments into sing-a-longs? Your baby will love to hear your voice!
Build Language and Reading Skills by Singing
Songs and rhymes do more than just build vocabulary and language. They also help develop a voice rich in inflection, clear speech sounds, and memory for words. Singing builds a strong foundation for literacy and your voice is the one that your child loves to hear the most!
Get Silly and Sing!
Don't be afraid to be a "Drama Momma" or a "Dramatic Daddy" when you sing! No matter what you sing to your baby, have fun! You don't have to know a lot of songs or even have a good singing voice. Whether it's a childhood classic like "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" or a new tune that you made up on the fly, you're helping your baby's brain grow. While listening to recorded music is a great activity, your singing is better for your baby.
