I saw this on a PostSecret video and loved it... so true.

Reinforcement Games

I found a new game at Target - Cars (the movie) fishing game! It includes 21 wheel "fish" to catch. It's kind of difficult to catch them, especially for the kids with motor delays, but overall I like it. The kids will say ANYTHING to get a car to fill up the holes and then we fish together.

Another all time favorite is Mr. Potato head... with glasses, eyes, nose, mouth, shoes, hat, 2 ears, & 2 arms... you've got yourself 10 pieces. and for all the mathematically retarded people (like me) out there, it makes it quick and easy to use each piece as a reward for a word well said and still keep quick percentages in your head.

Say Cheese... Pizza

I treated a 5 year old boy with moderate autism this afternoon. At the end of every treatment his mother says, "say bye-bye" and he says "say bye-bye". Today, she says it and he responds with, "say cheese pizza!!"

Every treatment with him is so different and can be very frustrating but he has gradually increased his novel expressions and I am very very excited about that!
