Parts of the House Listening Skills

Updated: Jul 11



What is it:

Test your child’s ability to listen to instructions before performing the appropriate action


Teaching Objectives:

  • To discriminate between items as number of items in the field increases

  • 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 in the printable before giving instructions

  • Give various types of instructions to the child. (E.g., “Colour/Cross/Circle/Tick/Underline the object)


Teaching Tips:

  • Ensure that the environment is free of potential distractors (sounds, toys, etc) to optimise your child’s listening

  • Guide your child’s hands with yours 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)

  • Start off with 1 or 2 familiar instructions before adding other instructions


Embed more learning opportunities:

  • Place your child’s favourite toys at different parts of your house and get him/her to find it (E.g. “Find your soft toy on the chair in the living room”)

  • Get your child to describe the things in the environment (E.g. “What colour is the bed in your room?”)

  • Give instructions such as retrieval of objects in your home (E.g. “Pass me the cup on the table in the kitchen”)

  • Read to your child and ask questions along the way to assess your child’s state of attention and listening ability
