Remind your child that listening attentively plays an important role in being able to rephrase information that is spoken orally. To help your child practice their listening skills, try reading to your child. After completing a section or chapter, ask your child some questions about the text. If your child is able to answer each question, then he/she listened to the information being shared. This can also be done through conversation. Talk with your child in normal everyday conversation. When finished speaking, ask your child a few questions about the conversation.
