Wait Time

Table of contents

By: 

Alison Carson, Vail Inclusive Preschool

Description: 

Children with communication disorders can be successful in following directions and answering questions, but they often need more time to process what we say to them. Frequent repetitions and pressure for a response can interrupt processing and overwhelm a child. Give your child at least 3-5 seconds (and sometimes 8-10 seconds) to respond to you before repeating yourself. Please watch the following video for more information about giving your child wait time in which to respond to something you have told or asked them.
