Parents Q&A – How to teach children to make request and ask questions spontaneously

Parent’s Concern: My 5 years old son is non-verbal. When he wants something he doesn’t know how to make request, all he does is crying and hitting others. He doesn’t ask for help either. This really concerns us a lot, how can we make him speak more?

Clip Demonstration #1 – make request – blow bubbles
