  • Encourage self-feeding.
  • Play water games – give him containers that he can use to pour from but always supervise him near water.

  • Place an interesting object a short distance away to encourage independent movement.
  • Repeat the word “tatta” so that he can learn the meaning.
  • Reward good behaviour.
