The Importance of a Plan

Making a plan is just as important as therapy itself. Kiddos have the opportunity to self-generate ideas and organize their thoughts into a plan. The ability to follow and complete a plan is a reward in itself and allows the child to feel accomplished and in control.

Try making a plan at home! Use white board or a piece of paper. Older kiddos can draw the plan and practice their fine motor skills too 🙂 Cross off items as you complete them. For kiddos who need support generating ideas (or if you have ideas you want to get completed) provide binary choices, such as “Do you want to do X or Y?”
