Summertime Memories

Summertime, summertime…..got to love it! Don’t forget that while you’re out with your special child, “Catch ‘em being good.” This is one of the principles of ABA which is easy to implement if we just remember to do so. This means praise, praise, praise your child for such things as spontaneously looking at you, “Hey, that was great looking!” Or, “I like the way you’re keeping your hands down!” Perhaps, “Wow! That was great waiting!!” So many times our kids receive attention (albeit negative) when they do things “wrong,” but lesser attention when they behave appropriately. This summer don’t forget to praise them for those times that you “catch ‘em being good!”
