Using Objects Functionally (for their intended purpose)
(for the intended purpose)
Encourage your child to notice/find
differences in objects (present 3 blocks and a doll; present 3 spoons and a
block; present a hammer and 3 balls).
Throughout the day present commonly used
objects in the vicinity of where they are typically used(e.g., give a telephone, a spoon, a cup, a
key, a remote control).
objects are often more appealing than toys. Use actual objects where
appropriate (e.g., a spoon, a broken phone receiver, etc.).
