Following Directions

Can your preschooler follow simple commands, like how to wave bye when they're leaving, or help you do simple cooking tasks like making a sandwich? Most children have a hard time following direction during school hours. It's important as parents to understand what children are able to understand and follow and sharpen these skills to maximize their learning. Luckily, we have activities and guides to improve your children's ability to follow directions effectively.

Here are some tips to improve the development of following directions:

  • Capturing your child's attention before giving your directions
  • Check to make sure they understand or ask them to repeat the directions to you
  • Use visual cues, like making a schedule or cue cards to encourage independence (rather than repeating the same phrase)
  • Rephrasing your directions so you are more direct
