WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME

  • I like watching Barney and sing-along videos on YouTube.

  • I like dancing to fun and upbeat music.

  • I like talking about what I’m going to eat for lunch, snacks, and most importantly dinner.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW & DO TO SUPPORT ME

Checking Work:

  • I work really fast so you need to remind me to slow down and check my work when laying out clothes and processing shoes so I do it correctly.

Communication:

  • I have trouble communicating my wants or needs. Instead of using my words I may begin to yell, hit, fake cry, hold my head down, jump up and down, or walk away quickly redirect me “3-2-1” do a breathing exercise with me to calm me down. If I’m walking away don’t follow me just say “Sarah 3-2-1 side by side”. Don’t forget to praise me!

TV Talk:

  • I sometimes will do TV talk, quickly redirect me to have a quiet mouth and remind me that TV talk is only done at home.
