Place the child in an infant seat or high chair where she can see her environment.
Elicit sounds if needed by modeling and banging on the table as well.
Infant produces vowel sounds and early consonant sounds.
Inform parents that shaking and banging are the beginning of learning about how to impact the environment. It is also the beginning of learning about rhythm and beat. Play music and the whole family can bang a beat together. The infant will find this great fun!
