Observe the infant in interaction with the adult.
No elicitation needed.
The infant responds vocally to the raised inflection of the adult.
Infants recognize the different vocal patterns the adult uses. Asking questions uses an upward inflection at the end. Infants learn that this inflection requires a response. Early childhood educators and parents should continue the “conversation” as long as possible.
