I am wondering how the rest of your toddlers do with this. Charlie doesn't do so well at all. I'm not talking about discipline-type stuff. We do okay there (well, mixed, but generally okay). I'm talking more about, like if I'm asking Charlie to pick up something that's on the floor and hand it to me, and I'm trying to describe the location of the thing, so I'll say something like "It's on the floor, over there by the couch, right next to the blue ball" or whatever. And even if I'm pointing straight at it, and describing the location in great detail, Charlie will just look around wildly like he has no idea what I'm saying at all. And he's not ignoring me on purpose, either, he's trying to find the thing, but he just can't understand me. It's weird, because his language is mostly pretty fantastic, but this happens frequently enough that I know he must have some kind of issue with receptive communication.
What about the rest of your LO's? How well do they do with following multi-step instructions? Has anyone else experienced what I'm describing?
Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
This is one area that Jackson is really good at. His comprehension is amazing. I could rattle off a whole list of things to do and he will do them all in the order I said them. My 5 year old is more like you described. I could ask him for something that is right beside him but he gives me a confused look like he has no idea what I'm asking for.
