Relationship Development Intervention with Young Children: Social and Emotional Development Activities for Asperger Syndrome, Autism, PDD, and NLD - Vol. 1

By Steven E. Gutstein; Rachelle K. Sheely | Go to book overview

STAGE 3: REGULATE

Goals and Objectives

With attention and referencing established, children are now ready to learn the "nuts and bolts" of becoming good Apprentices. Stages 3 and 4 cover the essential elements that prepare the child to eventually become a relationship partner. The goal of Stage 3 is establishing a Master–Apprentice relationship, where the child is carefully referencing his or her Coach for instruction and guidance. Now the child will be referencing you to learn how to become a more competent person in his actions with the social and object worlds.


Activity Summary

Initial activities focus on the elements of establishing a Novice-Master relationship for learning. The child functions as an assistant, accepting the limited role provided by you to aid him in whatever activity he is engaged in. Gradually he is given his own parallel activity and works on matching his actions with yours. Next, you move into a "Guiding" function, where the child is required to actively reference you and determine what he should be doing next. Along with guiding proper actions, children learn to accept your guidance to determine the proper speed and quality for their work efforts. Stage 3 ends with exercises focusing on making transitions and understanding basic emotional expressions. Both are essential skills for becoming an Apprentice.


Critical Tips
Carefully transition the Novice from an assistant to a parallel
role.
Do not allow the child to insert his own variations yet.
Remember to teach the concept of "good enough" but not
perfect work.
Attention shifting will become less difficult but still requires
practice.
Practice "Self Talk" out loud every time you are with the
Novice.
Teach transitions slowly and carefully.
