Language and academic knowledge?
Language is easy to atleast improve (most likely) You have to figure out your child's learning style. Is your child visual auditory or other?
If your child learns through listening start talking. The more verbalization you kid hears, the more she will be better at talking herself.
Ennglish is my *third* language. What is scary is i started speaking it at 9 months old. But i grew up in a very weird environment so i am a bad example. Often children spoken to often learn the quickest to use language though.
If your daughter is more visual.... How is her literacy? You could try making her read alot ooor well.... Maybe not *making* but more like getting her more interested in reading maybe offer rewards for it. Because the more she reads the more she will gain academic info and the more her vocabulary should improve and stuff....
That is about all i can think of. Someone else may have better ideas....
Oh! One more thought.... I know it worked wonders for my ephasic cousin i hope i spelled that right.... Sorry i am dyslexic... I have always been very musical and so one day my cousin came from California to visit. My aunt was at her wits end had no idea what to do sh couldn't understand her daughter. So i tried talking to my cousin. What i found, was that she nuked her vowels beyond recognition. Also she was very shy she knew she sounded funny.... So, i went over and i just kinda said n0ot to be nosy, but has anyone ever tried voice lessons? As in learning to sing and to make a healthy round sound? One of the most issues in vocal tech is using the vowels and making them right.
