On the Lighter Side...
...5 outrageous reinforcers sure to add fun in therapy

Hide Behind the Table! Turn the table on its side with the legs toward you. Hide until the child stands up to find you and then either roar or act scared.

Stayin' Alive! Break out your best John Travolta Disco imitation.

I Won't Drop You! Hold the child, worry and say, "I hope I don't drop you..." Then drop and catch them pretty low to floor (without letting go) with a, "Whew! Thank goodness!"

Table Tent! Use the table for a tent with a blanket over it, crawl underneath for chasing or quiet hiding.

Cardboard Fan! Swing cardboard in front of the child to create wind.

The names of all children in this newsletter have been changed in respect for family confidentiality.
