Observe the child in play interactions with family members, friends, siblings, and/or familiar peers.
No elicitation needed.
The child happily plays with all familiar people, showing toys, sharing, and playing. The child is more hesitant around strangers, but warms to them when she sees others accepting the person.
Encourage parents to include a variety of people in the child’s life. Exposure to others helps the child develop awareness of differences and tolerance for others.
