  • Intervention Planning: Review the Intervention Plan for asking “who” questions. Plan to complete 1 or 2 activities this month from this plan.

  • Teaching Tip: Encourage parents to have their children ask the following simple “who” questions at home: Who is it? Who says? Who did that? Who loves you?
