Give them tons of positive reinforcement when you notice them following directions - praise them (you did SUCH a great job doing what I asked you to do!), make a goal/behavior chart with them and mark each time they reach a goal, give incentives (playdate with friend, alone time with mom, pick a movie/activity, etc), The most effective will be praising them each and every time you notice them doing the right thing.
