Host: how can parents help older children follow directions? Dr. Rene Hackney: When they’re older, parents can help children follow directions by having the children actually write a list for themselves. They might jot down keywords from the directions and then work from those keywords. They might also have what’s called a direction body at least in the classrooms when young children are following directions.
