So my quaker, Perseus, has begun to talk. He says "Hello pretty bird" "Hi Little buddy" "uh-huh that's right" "step up" (but only when I say it to one of the other birds LOL he wants that attention!) and he'
s said a couple other things. I work with him on it daily- I'll be watching TV and he just starts to chatter then he talks. I repeat the words and encourage him to say more and reinforce what he's already been saying.
I can understand him though it's garbled. Everyone else can mostly make out his words but it's rough. He speaks too fast, it's not clear and the tone is very low. A few times he's raised his voice a few octaves (LOL falsetto) and it was surprisingly clear, though too fast still.
So my question is- Perseus is young, he's just over 1 year. Is there anything else I can do to encourage him to speak more clearly?
