In this lesson, Block imitation, your child uses blocks to copy a structure that you create. This is important because the required skills overlap the domains of visual performance and object imitation.

While this lesson seems simple, it teaches a variety of useful skills, including:

  • Generalization of basic matching abilities
  • Development of visual discrimination abilities
  • Development of fine motor skills
  • The ability to use another person’s model as a guide to complete a task
  • The ability to modify behavior to model another person’s behavior
  • The ability to complete a multiple-step task in a sequenced order
  • Development of emerging building/construction skills that can be later generalized into play opportunities
