Hear It Before They See It is when you let your child hear a sound or word before you show them the object.
Providing ear contact before eye contact is critical to growing your child's auditory skills. Another name for this is "audition first," and it will help their listening skills become as strong as their visual skills.
This is a strategy you'll focus on a lot, especially in the beginning. As your child's listening skills improve, they'll understand speech and language better. They'll recognize small differences in words that are similar, like ball and tall. They'll also better understand the chatter around the dinner table and when you are playing or sharing books with them.
