Observe the child during daily activities.
No elicitation needed.
The child asserts her abilities and desire to do things.
As children become more skilled and verbal, they begin to want more independence. Support parents in encouraging their child to do things independently, particularly activities of daily living. Talk about providing “least supports” and using low tech modifications for clothing, eating, etc.
