This task is a modified open-set measure that requires the child to manipulate toys in response to
instructions presented in the auditory-only modality (e.g., "Put a hat on Mr. Potato Head," "Make Mr.
Potato Head go to sleep"). Ten instructions are presented and scored on the basis of the number of key
words correct (out of a possible 20) and sentences correct (out of a possible 10). Chance performance for
sentences is 0%. Chance performance for words in the sentences is 5%.
Lay out Mr. Potato Head and parts. Review the names of the body parts and let child play with the pieces
briefly. Then tell child he must do exactly what you say. Start Mr. Potato Head with arms and orange
feet. Present items auditory only (modified open set). Record the child's response to each item, to aid in
scoring later.
