3.2 Saying the Learner’s Name

This is the open-access version of this module and your progress is not tracked or recorded

One way to get the learner’s attention is to say the learner’s name. Another way is to say “look,” “look at the pictures,” or “look at these.” You should only say one of these. Do NOT repeat them and do NOT use multiple sayings together.

Most clinics advise using the child’s name sparingly in this context. This reduces the likelihood that the child’s name becomes associated with demands. One way to combat this is remembering to also use the child’s name when presenting high preference items.
