Introduction: Language ability is an indicator of a child's overall development. Language skills are sensitive to delay or damage to other systems because they involve cognitive abilities, sensory-motor, psychological, emotional, and the environment around the child. This study aimed to analyze the effect of stimulation using flashcard media on language and speech development in pre-school age children (3-5 years).
Methods: Quasi-experimental study with one group pre-test-post-test design. The sampling technique was simple random sampling involving 48 respondents, pre-school age children (3-5 years). The independent variable is stimulation through using flashcards for 3x30 minutes for 1 week, while the dependent variable is language and speech development. Instruments using KPSP questionnaires were adjusted to the age of the respondent. Data analysis used the Wilcoxon test with = 0.05.
Results: If the p-value is 0.16, then flashcards affect improving language and speech development in children, doubtful development increases to be appropriate after stimulation with flashcards.
Conclusion: Stimulation must be given regularly and continuously either by parents, teachers or health workers with affection and playing methods so that children's development will run optimally
