3 If your child can do the task for a certain number of pictures with no difficulty, change the timings and/or step up to the next level.If your child is finding this activity difficult, don’t worry, just some different explore strategies, such as: sating the objects out loud, visualisation and making links between pictures (e.g. making them into a story).You can also do this activity on a table, where you place a number of objects on a tray, ask your child to look at them, cover them up with a towel, ask your child to close their eyes, then take 1 object away. Once the object has been taken away, remove the towel and ask your child which object has been removed. To make this task easier, only put 4 or 5 objects on the tray & increase the number of objects when you think appropriate.
