Following Directions

Between ages 1 and 2, toddlers start to understand simple commands. They’ll first notice with gestures accompanying words then just by voice. This is a great opportunity to teach your child about putting toys away and letting him or her feel good about this new-found knowledge.


You’ll be amazed at how fast your toddler’s knowledge grows by age 2. At this point, most toddlers will be able to acknowledge and act on a simple-sentence command. You can help them through repetition and introduction of new words, simple phrases as often as possible.

Your toddler’s interest level and your support will drive him or her to succeed.
