Watch Wait and Wonder (with Facilitator Guide*)
Watch, Wait and Wonder is a training package based on observing a child’s play; the child initiates the play and the parent is encouraged to follow their lead. Parents are instructed to sit on the floor and to be watchful and responsive to whatever the child wants to do rather than to initiate, teach, instruct, correct or intervene in their child’s play.
The program has since been adapted in Australia by Dr Michael Zilibowitz, Developmental & Behavioural Paediatrician, making it more readily available as a universal parent education program.
The Facilitator Guide provides a background and rationale for the program, as well as assisting professionals to facilitate 3 sessions with families.
