Observe natural interactions during daily routines and play.
Ask the child to put an object in a specific spot (e.g., “Put your truck in the toy box.”) or ask the child to get something (e.g., “Go get your shoes.”)
The child follows simple commands that include familiar words.
Help parents understand that the child at this level can participate in tasks. He can carry clothes from the dryer, take spoons to the table, etc. Giving the child simple little tasks builds the child confidence.
