Twelve Months

Babies with pre-NLD will likely respond quite well to positive reinforcement, provided that cause-effect relationships are verbally understood. Reward child for good eye contact and any other sign of appropriate social discourse. Consult a child psychologist or other specialist if child shows difficulty with social issues. Gently help child learn not to do socially inappropriate things using verbal talk-throughs. Parents will be amazed by how much an NLD child’s responses improve when they go through issues verbally. Encourage child to learn about environment by asking and answering questions. Realize talkative behavior is how the child makes sense of information. Balance talking with reading and interaction with other young children. Help child brush teeth by talking through it.
