In this lesson, we teach communication for those who are getting independent under each category of communicating, interacting and bonding.

Lesson Takeaways

  • Sometimes we miss some words our child said: we can be so involved trying to teach bye, but they said hi, and we missed it. No big deal, just notice it. Bring it up. Bring compliments.
  • Find a word that creates action. Teach them skills that they can use that will automatically be rewarded in new environments. Peek a boo creates a game. What word can we reinforce? Don’t ever ignore a word, but think what will make their world move more?


  • They’re communicators because they interact. Accept all gestures. Try different things and see where the spark is. Sneak in words, but the word is just not where the weight is.
  • If too much questioning and talking, the game doesn’t take shape. In interaction you want to give shape


  • Talk about how much you enjoy being together, love them, and that might turn into communication.
  • If you don’t know what to do, bond, relax, be together

Spontaneous language:

  • Usually most of the time, the words come later, it’s difficult in the middle of action to say the words
  • Spontaneous language is easier than requested language. They’re learning in their rhythm.
