Acting out Scenes
We have worked on “sessions” with Lauren since she was three years old. First we identify a skill we want Lauren to learn – example – not eat food that is found on the ground. We would then have sisters/brothers act out exaggerated scenes for Lauren to observe. i.e.: “Yuck, look at this raisin on the floor. It is dirty. I am going to put it in the garbage. It is full of germs.” Each day Lauren would observe one or two of these sessions. It could be done by siblings, friends, kids at school etc.
