In this clip, you will see a therapist modeling an action for imitation about once every two minutes. She monitors the child’s motivation and models actions with toys the child is already interested in. This helps increase the chances that the child will see the model and be motivated to imitate. As soon as the steps for teaching object imitation have been completed, the therapist returns to imitating the child’s actions with toys, body movements and vocalizations. She also uses simple language to describe what the child is doing and seeing.
