I started thinking, ok if he can behave and keep focused for an hour while she is here, why can't he do it when she isn't. I mean I only do maybe 2 hours of school with him as it is. It's all about the structure and he knows what she expects and what comes next when it comes to routine. I'm not good with routine, especially with school work. My goal this year is to become more routine oriented when it comes to his school day.
After I talked to her a few days later, she had a list of things we could work on. Number one thing is his independence. I do everything for him, get out his pencil, hold the book, dress him, you name it he needs that attention or guidance. The other day I let him put on his clothes by himself. They didn't match and I was like whatever. But, the shirt was inside out and backwards. It was a collared shirt. I was like Kaden!!!! Isn't that uncomfortable with that collar flapping in your face????? He said no it was fine and shrugged his shoulders. :D You just have to love him!!! Of course I helped him turn his shirt around and he still wore the outfit with one striped sock and one of his sister's that was bright white. I figure you need to pick your battles and take one step at a time! :)

The next 6 or 7 years will be very interesting!!! I'm just thankful to have the ABA support to help me set a great learning foundation as far as his Learning Behavior. I would strongly suggest if you Homeschool and have a Kiddo on the Spectrum, get as much ABA guidance as possible. This is a 1st for the ABA Company we use, so this is all new for them. But, they see the need and are very excited to learn new ways of therapy that they can offer.
