Embark on the Question Discovery, an interactive activity designed to help your child understand and ask simple questions. This guide is curated for young children, especially those with developmental delays or special needs, aiming to foster curiosity and communication skills through playful question-and-answer interactions.

Detailed Activity Instructions:

Setting the Stage:

Create a comfortable setting with minimal distractions, surrounded by familiar toys, objects, and picture books to facilitate question-and-answer play.

Understanding Simple Questions

Start by asking direct questions about objects or pictures. For instance, point to an object and ask, ‘What’s this?’ or ‘Where’s the ball?’ Use picture books to inquire about images, making understanding questions a contextual experience.

Asking Simple Questions

Encourage your child to ask questions. Prompt them to inquire about a toy, guiding them to form questions like, ‘What is this?’ or ‘Can I play with it?’ Engage in a lively question-and-answer game, encouraging interaction.

Addressing Potential Concerns:

Difficulty in Formulating or Understanding Questions

If forming or understanding questions is challenging, use visual aids like toys or pictures to make the questions more concrete. Model both asking and answering questions clearly.

Limited Verbal Responses

For children with limited verbal skills, gestures or pointing are encouraged as a form of response. Accept non-verbal cues as valid answers.

Lack of Engagement or Interest

Maintain engagement by asking questions about your child’s interests. Use their favorite toys, characters, or activities to frame your questions.

Objective of the Activity:

‘Question Discovery’ aims to build your child’s understanding of simple questions and encourage them to inquire actively, enhancing both comprehension and expressive language skills.

Closing and Additional Tips:

Throughout this activity, keep it light and fun. Encourage your child’s natural curiosity and praise their efforts to communicate. Regularly incorporate simple questions into your daily routines to reinforce learning. Enjoy exploring the world of questions and answers together!
