Your role as communication partner:



  • Face to Face – this enables baby to develop eye contact with you

  • Imitate – copying the sounds a baby makes provides opportunity for the baby to hear back their sound and shows you are interested in them

  • Take Turns – notice that when you talk or sing to baby they will respond by moving, making facial expressions or cooing.  This is early turn taking.
