Observe the child near stairs.
Give the child a reason to climb the stairs (though he may not need a reason as this is a fun challenge).
The child hangs on to the stair rail and climbs independently.
Stairs provide an opportunity for children to lift one leg considerably higher than the other. It requires weight shifting, both to one side and forward or backward, depending on whether going up or down stairs. If the child lives in a stair-free home, encourage parents to take the child to community environments that have stairs for the child to practice.
