What do you need?
May I hold you?
What’s happening for you?
He’s using that right now. Will this one work for you?
What are you feeling?
How can I help you?
Would you be interested in this?
Are you frustrated? Are you needing space?
Can I help you with that?
I would love to.
Will this work?
What if we tried it this way?
What’s your idea?
What are you hoping for?
What would you like?
What would you prefer?
What’s your opinion?

I’m so grateful for you.
