Trying to help your child expand from one word utterances, then add a word.  Sounds simple because it is.  Adding a word will provide your child with a model for how to combine words.   Your little one doesn’t have to repeat after you.  Listening is his only task.  But in time, you will hear longer phrases.

Here are a few examples:

Child says  “up”                    You say “pick up”

Child says  “all gone”          You say “crackers all gone”

Child says  “shoe”                You say “shoe off”
