Before entering the son-rise room with Nathan:
1. Think of a theme for the session.
like: at the zoo, having a birthday party, music and dancing, at the beach, under the sea, etc. It can can be based on his current motivations like: drumming/tapping on everything and by everything or 101 things to do with a “wedding gown”
2. Identify 5 toys or activities in the room that you can use as part of your session. Think of simple games you can create. You can be guided by a review the list of Nathan’s motivations or isms against the targets for this month.
3. Always remember, enter the room with the agenda. But the number one goal is to make Nathan feel that you are his “friend.” If Nathan is not up to it, drop your agenda and go back to joining.
