Observe the infant when the adult is talking out of the infant’s line of sight.
No elicitation needed.
The infant looks toward the sound of the adult’s voice.
Explain to early childhood educators and parents the importance of the infant’s looking for voices. This is the foundation for communication. We find the speaker and attend to their voice. Later we attend to the content of their message.
