THINK ABOUT . . . Your child is learning to listen to new sounds and needs plenty of time to think about the information he or she is hearing. This extra time can often be mistaken for a child not paying attention or misunderstanding. When parents remember to use the strategy of “wait time”, it gives your child time to listen to and think about what you are saying before having to respond. Remind other members of the family to do the same!
