“Play Alone” is one of the four categories that need to be recorded in order for a clinician to diagnose your child.
How to Record a “Play Alone” Video
– Record your child playing with toys/fun items (NO ELECTRONICS).
– Set up 5-10 toys.
– Mount the camera ahead of time and make sure the child/toys are in view and the child is facing the camera.
– Play with him briefly to get the play started (call his name; point to something saying “Look at that;” ask him where something is in the room, “Where’s the dog?”; try to get him to smile without touching).
– After each interaction, wait and see what he does. After a few minutes of interaction, let him play alone.
