Choice of Two
Hold up two objects and give your child a choice of which one they want. If you see their eyes land on it, they reach for it, or they point to it, you know their selection.
Have them try to say the word before you give it to them.
“You want the ball. Say ‘ball’.” As soon as they make a sound (even if just a grunt), give it to them and praise them for using their words.
Simplify Your Speech
Use 2-3 word sentences when playing with your child and doing daily routines to make your speech easier to copy.
For example, “More water”, “Mommy go”, “Daddy work”, “My shoe”, and “Throw ball”.
