  • Teach the learner to tact listener disinterest and teach techniques for how to respond to disinterested learners (Peters & Thompson, 2015)
  • Teach the learner to respond to silence with the delivery of a compliment (adapted from Hood et al., 2020)

use modeling techniques with visual task scripts to follow

  • Teach a universal response to listener silence (the parent’s planned ignoring), such as saying “I enjoyed speaking with you” and then walking away (inspired by Yamamoto & Isawa, 2020)
