To build social imitation and social engagement, you will go back and forth between imitating your child, and helping your child to imitate you. It can be challenging to use all of the techniques together during interactions with you child. It can also be hard to find a good balance between imitating your child’s behavior and providing opportunities for your child to imitate you. One of the best things you can do is practice, practice, practice! Try using the RIT techniques across different activities and during different times of day to find your and your child’s comfort zone.
