What's the question?

My child only points to things, he doesn`t ever ask for things by name. What should I do?

When your child requests something by pointing, pick up the object plus something else and offer your child a choice of the two, telling him what they are.

For example if your child requests a biscuit by pointing at a packet of biscuits, pick up the biscuits and an apple and ask 'Do you want a biscuit or an apple?'

If your child still points to the one he wants and doesn`t use any words, label it again saying 'oh you want the biscuit!'
