i've been so busy living with the changes in my life, i haven't shared what they are.
Max no longer has day service with Company A. We're working on new things to do with the hours/funding. (and i need to be finished here so i can make more telephone calls to that effect. . .)
Anyway, since he is no longer at the day service, his behavior consultant came by yesterday to brainstorm with us on what her place in the scheme of things now is, & some things we can do to help Max behave as we/he want(s).
i thought i'd share this article i just came across. While i haven't used exactly the formats the writer has, we have used all these tips. They really do help.
