Dance with your child and ask, “Should we dance slow” Pick them up and gently move as you hum a slow tune. “Should we dance fast” Change your tune and dance faster. Watch how they use their arms or move to tell you which they like and respond to what they’re telling you.

“Dance Speeds” gives you a chance to do something fun together in a loving way. It also allows you to respond to their movements to begin to help them connect words to their feelings and thoughts. It’s the way your child will learn to talk and communicate later.
