Since introducing a more aggressive approach to Gavin’s behavioral choices, he has been making better choices. We have gone a complete day without a single meltdown.
There were at least two situations yesterday that would have previously resulted in a very aggressive meltdown. However, upon reminding Gavin of what would happen if he chose to have a meltdown, he very quickly and easily shut it down.
This is very encouraging, however it’s only been one day.
My hope is that he can continue this positive trend into the future. I pray for the day we can treat Gavin the way we do the other boys. Up to this point, there has always had to be different rules for Gavin because of his behavior.
Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come. Right now I’m cautiously optimistic.
