“One, Two, Buckle Your Shoe (Then Put On Your Coat)”
Once your child has mastered following simple 1-step directions, begin to give him more complex demands. These demands can involve simple 2-step but related directions with 1 object (e.g., “Get the tissue and wipe your nose.”).
- During mealtime say, “Junior get the napkin and wipe your face.”
- During bath time say, “Junior get the soap and wash your face.”
- During dressing say, “Junior get your shoes and put them on your feet.”
- While playing with your child say, “Junior get the ball and roll it to me.”
