Putting Therapy Into Practice

Have your child look in their closet and/or dresser and find cooler weather clothing. Tell your child to try on the clothing they picked. Talk about: Does it fit? Do you still like this? Why? Why not? Do we need to get more? Then, make a list of clothing needed for the fall and winter seasons.  Put the clothing that does not fit in boxes for storage.  Consider sharing the clothing with a friend or donating the clothing to an organization.

Danielle’s Recommended Game

Who Lives Where?  is a great game to encourage pragmatic language, attention to task, and following directions.


  • Pragmatic Language: Ask your child Who goes now? or Whose turn is it now?  They can respond You (do), I do, me, your turn, my turn.
  • Attention to Task:  Reinforce your child for waiting their turn and for remaining with you while playing the activity.
  • Motor Speech Control: Speak with your PROMPT© trained clinician to determine which words in the following lexicon are appropriate for your child at this time: Me, you, home, go home, you go, I go, he needs a home, make a home.
