Fire Station Listening
What is it:
Test your child’s ability to listen to instructions before performing the appropriate action
To discriminate between items
To differentiate across various types of instructions
To sustain attention required to listen and act upon the instruction
How to use:
Assess your child’s knowledge of the different objects listed before giving instructions.
Give various types of instructions to the child. (E.g.,“Colour/Cross/Circle/Tick/Underline the object as stated by you)
Ensure that the environment is free of potential distractors (sounds, toys, etc.) to optimise your child’s listening
Use hand over hand prompt to perform the action as instructed if child is unsure of what to do (E.g. Strokes needed to cross/tick/underline/circle an object)
If the child is having difficulties, start off with 1 or 2 instructions and ensure mastery before adding more instructions
