Does anyone know some quick easy exercises to get him listening a little better? I am not expecting to get it perfect since we don't have much time, but hopefully we can at least get it better. Thanks! :)
To add to this. When you first start, make sure that you over exaggerate the cues so that he kinds gets the feel for them. Then lighten up after a while when you think he "gets it".
