"My approach to intervention is rooted in respect for child development and focuses on making the mundane meaningful, looking at daily interactions as opportunities for learning and growth while respecting the uniqueness of the individual and family. It’s about setting high expectations for long term quality of life and relationships for individuals on the spectrum and implementing a specific and doable plan to get there one step at a time.”

Fast & Slow Thinking

It's taking a bit for me to connect all the ways the examples in the video relate to guided participation- and individuals on the spectrum.  One of the first things that popped in my mind, was appraisal... and how the fast brain in all of us makes quick appraisals of situations... and how so often for individuals on the spectrum this appraisal is off and based on a non-essential element of the situation or relationship at hand.  Very interesting, I will be thinking about this more.
