Encouraging a Request:

Requesting is one of the early language skills that children need to learn:

so when your child wants something follow this exchange to help them.

Adult: "Mmmm that looks yummy". WAIT

"I like to eat (name snack item)"

"Hmmm, I wonder what you want" WAIT

"I think you want something...." WAIT

"Do you want skittles or crackers?" WAIT

"Skittles" Give them 1 or 2 then start over trying again supporting the request.
