In this video, we looked at some techniques that you can use to help your child understand and start to perform daily routines. Daily routines are packed with some precious teachable moments, so slow it down and make every moment count.
Before you move on…
Turn to your workbook and tick off in the checklist any of the daily routines that your child already knows. If they still have a little further to go, you can begin practicing the techniques we discussed in the video to help them on their way.
