SLP Corner: Learning to Follow Directions in Speech Therapy
[Source: Activity Tailor]
Half the battle with Kindergarteners is following directions. While all those early reading and math skills are critical components, it’s the inability to follow directions that derails kiddos and classrooms most.
Parents often feel that following directions has more to do with compliance and tend to say “refuses to” or “won’t listen,” maybe “stubborn” or “uncooperative.” My experience has been that the ones not following directions are struggling more with the concepts and language load of the instructions as opposed to a true behavioral issue.
