Quick Tips To Help Your Child Understand Your Directions
Your child’s vocabulary is growing rapidly, but that is not a guarantee for understanding and executing what you say.
In order to follow your instructions, it is very important that he learns to pay attention to what he hears. He will respond best when you give simple and clear directions conveyed slowly while he takes his time to process the information without any distractions. Be firm but not a dictator.
Ensure there is a sequence to the task and include positive words. For instance, say ''Sit on the chair'' instead of ''Don’t stand.''
Share books that talk about predictable sequences. For instance, ''Jack lived in a farm and wanted vegetables. Where did he go?''
Once the directions are conveyed, ask your child to repeat them.
