The dog days of summer are here—and many kids have a lot more leisure time on their hands. To prevent overuse of tech devices, try these ideas for non-tech activities that are fun AND promote language, literacy and learning. Many of these activities are suitable for both younger and older children.

Summer Learning Activities

These are just a few ideas to get your family started. All of these activities offer wonderful opportunities for face-to-face communication, conversation, interaction, and cooperation—which can help boost kids’ language, reading and writing, problem-solving and planning skills.

People who use low- and high-tech augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices should continue to use them at all times—and in an interactive way.

Think of new ideas, create a summer bucket list and start checking off items. Kids will have plenty to talk about when they are asked what they did this summer!
