Puts Outerwear in an Assigned Place

“Hang-Up Your Coat!”

  • Create a designated area to place the family’s outerwear (coat rack, closet, hook).
  • Place your child’s name in the designated area so your child can identify where to put a coat.
  • Physically assist your child if necessary at first when removing and replacing the outerwear.
  • Verbalize the location of the outerwear as you remove and place it (“E.g. I am taking my coat off the hook”.)
  • Make sure your child is watching each time you remove and replace your outerwear from the assigned location, modeling putting the outerwear in its assigned place.
  • Once a routine is set, your child should be able to place outerwear in its assigned place without assistance.
