Visual Skills : Choices
The objective for choices is for your child to be able to independently pick a desired item from a choice of two items presented to her/him.
What to do
- Sit on the floor with your child.
- You hold up a block and a sucker. A
- sk your child “Adam what to you want?”
- Adam points to the sucker. OR Adam says “sucker”.
If your child does not respond to your “visual cues” – keep prompting and trying until he or she does.
Also, If you need to create a visual advantage for one item . . . put the FAVORITE item you think your child wants (out of the two choices) a little in front of the other, so that you create this unbalanced “advantage” for the particular object. This should prompt your child to make a choice. Explanation of this is within the video.
Items you need
- A toy
- Nintendo DS
- Anything your child likes to play with or shows interest in.
