Less Behaviors WHAT?
How do you get less behaviors from individuals served with developmental, intellectual and mental health disabilities? It’s all in the details!
When they talk negative refocus them to positive. Because many of us not even those with disabilities can remain stuck in a negative mindset, do your best to show them that they don’t have to be. Praise for the positive.
When they ask for something, pay attention. Think about what you need in order to live a fulfilling life. Things you may not have needed years ago but times change. We are all looking to fit in, be loved and have things in life that make it worthwhile. Listen to the little things. Keep consistent and follow the plan. Make sure the plan makes sense. Tweak as necessary and have fun!
Watch those behaviors go bye bye.
