Try: # minimize noise and other distractions in the cr’s envioronment # ask the cr to point to something that can help the caregiver identify what the cr wants or needs # ask the cr to write down what he or she is trying to say # ask cr yes or no questions to simplify the conversation # point to objects the cr may be talking about # summarize what cr has said to make sure he or she was correctly understood

Materials: # paper pencil # index cards poster board
