Getting Little Ones to Respond

toddlerBy: Shari Harpaz

For our busy youngsters it can be difficult to focus on auditory (sounds we hear) information when they are playing with toys and/or engaged in activities.

Here’s what I recommend:

  • Try walking closer to your child and getting down to his/her eye level.
  • Make sure your child is looking at you before you begin to give the direction or ask the question.
  • Speak slowly. Speak simply.
