How do I encourage my child’s vocalization through predictable routines?
- Auditory closure is when you pause at the end of a familiar phrase and provide your child with an opportunity to respond.
- A response might look like a vocalization, a word approximation, an imitation, or spontaneously generating the anticipated phrase.
- Auditory closure is often paired with an expectant look (looking at your child as if it was their turn to talk) and plenty of wait time.
