Video: Mom Pulling Language & Working On Waiting
Nicky lives on what I call our "In Home Torture Program" where nothing is free not even his "Freetime" !. Everything's earned and it's a life of first this and then that. :) All day we use his favorite things as leverage to teach skills and reduce negative behaviors and he's come SO FAR!!! He's doing so much in these short clips; he's waiting, keeping his body calm, accepting re direction, following my multiple directions and he's responding to my conversational questions all things he COULD NOT and/or WOULD NOT be doing if not for all the early intervention strategies. I remember when he would get so frustrated he could only wait a minute and then he would melt down. Now he know's it's all about "I give" and "I get".
Whats happening in the video:
Nicky loves the computer and looking at pictures on the computer is a BIG favorite. He really wants the computer and I've told him he can have it in a few minutes, BUT first he needs to answer my questions and talk to me while keeping his body calm and waiting.
