The What Did You Hear? strategy means you ask your child what they heard instead of immediately repeating what you said.
Encourage your child to become a better listener and grow confidence in their listening skills. If your child isn't sure of what was said or doesn't appear to understand, they may ask "Huh?" or, "What?" to respond. Ask them, "What did you hear?" More often than not, your child heard part of the message. By asking, you'll know what information needs to be repeated and they may be able to determine what was said on their own.
Using this strategy encourages your child to take responsibility for their own listening by focusing the first time something is said or asked. It also provides your child confidence in their listening abilities. You'll learn more about how they're hearing and can share this information with your LSL professional.
