After patience, time, the right approach, and a lot of hard work, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a child empowered by real progress.
All of the small victories accomplished along the way are pieces of the bigger puzzle, and that got us thinking, Why not celebrate and share those progress pieces too? So that’s exactly what we’re doing!
And it’s not just our kiddos who are empowered with progress – our team members feel the benefits personally & professionally!
1) “Target” the issue
One client used to have significant meltdowns at the store. I have been doing parent trainings in Target. Last night I hid in the aisles so the child wouldn’t see me. I observed mom, dad, brother, and client navigate Target with zero issues! She earned a new Lego movie for doing so well in the store and parents were able to purchase what they needed within 30 minutes. – Katie N.
2) Oh yes!
I have a non-vocal client who uses Nova Chat as her primary method of communication and makes little to no eye contact. She made eye contact with me and vocalized “oh no” when her break ended and it was time to put away a preferred item. -CTM II, AHSS
