A. Cars: To make the typical purpose of the toy more clear, add some visual cues. For example, if you are teaching your child to play with cars, make a simple road on a piece of cardboard or with a piece of track from car racing sets. The road should have an obvious start, such as an outline of the car, and an obvious finish, such as a box the car disappears into. Demonstrate for your child that the car starts in one place and moves to the end, and that it gets there by rolling on the road. You might make car sounds to teach your child another aspect of car play that other children use.
An activity that can contribute to the development of joint attention is to create situations in which joint attention is more likely to occur. For example, reading picture books is an activity which often involves joint attention. While reading the book, point to a picture and name the picture while looking back and forth between the book and your child. This demonstrates to your child a form of joint attention that s/he can copy.
7. Expressing specific needs. This is usually motor communication which may include reaching for objects, taking a person to an object, bringing an object to a person, or putting a person's hand on an object. At this stage the child has a specific idea about his or her needs and is trying to communicate this need. The child's intentions, however, may not always be clear to the adult.

Taking turns while you imitate is harder than imitating at the same time, it is best to use two identical objects when imitating. Common household objects, such as spoons, toy blocks, or toothbrushes can be used for any of these activities.
7. Imitating a sequence of actions is probably the most difficult type of imitation. Sequential imitation should start with two simple movements such as clapping then banging the table. Then move on to longer sequences and more complicated movements. Learning this difficult type of imitation may be helpful to your child because it will help to introduce the idea of doing things in a specific order. Learning to put a series of movements into the proper sequence can be translated into many other activities such as completing two step tasks or counting.
