He cites recent estimates published in 2016, in the journal Lancet Psychiatry.

“Independence Themed” Visual Place Mat Engagement System

Preparing your child for an independent life

 A kit is shipped to you with “Independence Themed” Visual Place Mat Engagement System to use for many years to come. Coordinating video training direct to the child is included.
Your child will be taught to participate, at their level, in:

  •    chores (start at age 2)
  •    grocery shopping
  •    learning appropriate behaviors
  •    communication of needs and wants
  •    recognizing facial expressions
  •    and much more!

The system: think of a group of laminated kitchen place mats at the dinner table. These visual reminders immerse the child and the parent(s) into evidence-based strategies, along with video instructions, that will last a lifetime for all family members.
The system will serve as a visual reminder of all of the techniques that can and should be used in the home, community and school on a daily basis that reduce stress for the family.

Reward Cards

Reward

 

Also known as "reinforcers", rewards should be motivating to the child, and given when activities are completed.

Positive reinforcement is a pillar in evidence-based strategies.

The child will get bored with one type of reward, so you are provided with choices!

Break Cards

Teach Self-Regulation to Prevent Meltdowns

 

Coordinating child education video is included.

Children and adults need to learn their own limits and their own triggers and when to use their coping skills to prevent meltdowns.

Break cards are visual tools that serve as a constant reminder that the child needs to ask for a break when he or she is in the early stages of being overwhelmed.

This is a life-long independence skill that the child will use when they are a working adult.
