I have proposed several therapy ideas lately and I thought it would be nice to update on what we are liking and what has lost it's draw.
First the behavior charts. They worked fantastically in the beginning. They were motivating, they were helpful and they definitely encourage better behavior. Problem is that once it became part of the routine it was much less motivating. I can't say it doesn't work at all but the first couple of weeks were much better than now (a couple months later). I do think for older kids who would have a better understanding of the abstract concept it would work better.
Settle Down Monkey - We are still in love with Settle. He comes with us everywhere just in case Grace "needs him." I think we might be investing in a settle down bear for Abby.
The scent inhalers - Oh, the beautiful scent inhalers. Not only do the work amazingly but the woman who sells them is angelic. She sent me a sample pack to try and give out to our friends FREE OF CHARGE. How amazing is that! I am going to try to arrange a giveaway here on my blog so some other families will get to try them for free. Details will be upcoming!
