I’ll be honest, I hear this type of thing from worried parents ALL the time in my EI sessions. And I love to whip out this handy visual and show them, that’s okay! They’re not supposed to yet!

I find in todays times we are expecting SO much from toddlers regarding their play skills that aren’t even developmentally appropriate (*cough* SHARING *cough*).

Save this post next time you need to have a handy visual to show caregivers or teachers.

Often child-led sessions are the way to go for most clients. But when it comes to working with Autistic PDAer's, it is even more important we follow their lead.

Imagine every time a demand was placed on you, even simple ones like putting on your shoes, your whole body erupted in anxiety and fear. For Autistic PDAer's, this is their reality every day. When a task is perceived as a demand, regardless of whether or not they are interested in the task, their drive for autonomy overrides their interest and shutdown begins. This is why even our best typical strength-based methods often fall flat with these clients. So what do we do instead?

⭐ Decrease demands as much as possible. Reduce schedules and "must-do" tasks to a minimum wherever possible.
⭐ Notice your language. Instead of giving demands or making requests, use I statements to invite them in and allow them to see their participation as a choice rather than demand. "I'm going to eat a snack".
⭐ PDAer's are deeply internally motivated. They can sense when you try to corrupt their interests and use them to enforce a task demand. Instead of using their interests in your therapy session, respect their interests and allow them to guide you.

Co-Regulation is NOT ‘coddling’. Co-regulation is NOT ‘reinforcing an undesirable behavior’. Co-regulation is offering empathetic kindness to another human being. So the next time your child, your student, or your client is having a difficult moment, know that when you offer co-regulation in a way that is meaningful to them, you are teaching them that they are deserving of empathy and kindness.
