btw - i am asking in this forum because I want an unschool-friendly answer
I'm wondering if there are any games, or other certain activities that would help my dd who just turned 4, to collect her thoughts and put them better into words. She was a very late talker and I still notice she is behind her peers in this regard. She is very bright and has many talents, but gets frustrated sometimes when talking (and i know the feeling!) She tends to start a thought and then trail off........."....ummmm.....ummmmmm....." and I wait patiently, or just say "that's ok, take your time" if anything. But often times she will just shrug and say "I forgot" or "i don't know what to say"
Any thoughts? My aim is not to push her in her slow-er development, but give her some fun tools and tricks that may make communication easier for her.
