This morning I did an ABA session with T2. I was really worried about behavioural problems because I haven't done a session with him for about a month. Anyway he was really good and did really well on many targets, like riding a bike, pronouns, occupation functions, mazes etc. But he is still getting confused with some where/when questions and having trouble making up stories. For reinforcement we did chasing where I pretended to be a dinosaur or a ghost, roly poly with a blanket where I roll him up in a blanket and then he does the same to me, alphabet puzzle (sigh!) reading books and a snack. Reinforcement is so important in ABA, just as it is in life.
After that, my mother-in-law, my eldest and I went to the city to the Swissotel for a Christmas High Tea buffet. It was AMAZING. I bought a Groupon voucher so it was very reasonably priced. When I wanted to bring my eldest they only charged $20 extra for him to come (this included full buffet, orange juice and a hot chocolate!). I asked to speak to the chef about my eldest's peanut allergy and there was only one dish with peanuts. And there was a chocolate fountain! We were all in food heaven and were seated in a quiet window seat together. What a fantastic afternoon. It was my eldest's last day as a 10 year old. I can't believe it!
