Observe the child on her stomach with a desired toy within reach.
Give the child a small piece of food on a table or high chair tray.
The child slightly shifts her weight to one side to enable one arm to reach forward.
Encourage parents to give the child tummy time and tempt them with toys to prompt reaching.
