Observe the child with family members during daily routines.
Watch to see if the child uses names or approximations for parents and/or siblings.
The child uses terms for his parents and siblings and other frequently seen people.
Encourage parents to let their child help with daily activities. This provides an opportunity to label objects and increase vocabulary. Interaction during the activity can help develop turn-taking and sharing skills. The infant is also learning self-help skills that will contribute to later independence.
