WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW & DO TO SUPPORT ME
Patience/Stay with Group:
When I finish my lunch early and feel like doing my own thing, I might want to wander off. You can help me by reminding me to be patient and wait for the rest of my group.
I normally bring lunch from home or I’ll buy lunch. I like to cut my food up while I eat. To practice good eating habits, please remind me to always use my napkin as needed and to chew with my mouth closed.
Using a whiteboard is my form of communication. If you see that my whiteboard is getting dirty and needs a good clean, let me know!
If you see leakage from my nose or mouth, please remind me to wipe my face. I want to look my best for work!
I am prone to seizures and I use VNS.
