4. Make it Routine
Routines and themes assist me keep on observe through the faculty 12 months, and I wish to recommend the identical to my households for the summer season. Relying in your pupil, chances are you’ll advocate a couple of actions for households to concentrate on constantly in day by day or weekly routines. Some years, I’ve beneficial day by day ‘themes’ and corresponding exercise concepts reminiscent of Motion Monday, Positive Motor Tuesday, Sensory Wednesday, Cooking Thursday, Group Outing Friday. Households can select one exercise per day based mostly on the day by day theme. Or, you may collaborate with a household to decide on 1 or 2 day by day routines to focus on and advocate a therapeutic spin on it. For instance, when studying books at bedtime, have the coed lay on his tummy. Through the morning routine, attempt to encourage decreased verbal prompts. This manner, actions don’t really feel like ‘further’ work as a result of they’re already embedded into actions that occur within the household every day!
