Remembering two things at a time
Why is this important?
Verbal understanding is like a ‘list’ of things/items that need to be
remembered in order to carry out the task. An example of a two-word level
instruction is ‘Give doll a banana’ (e.g. children have to remember ‘doll’ and
‘banana’). If children can’t do this, it may be that their auditory memory is
not yet sufficiently developed.
What to do
N.B. Try to remember not to look at the items as you ask for them or eye-point during the task as this gives clues over and above the meanings of the words only.
