Observe the infant in interaction with the adult.
No elicitation needed.
The infant uses gestures to make a request for an object or action.
Help early childhood educators and parents understand the nonverbal communication that the infant uses. “Translate” the infant’s actions and gestures. “He’s asking you to look at his toy.” “She’s moving away. That’s asking for a break.”
