I don’t even know where to begin with my son’s Cognitive Support Plan. It has changed everything! I thought I had a pretty good grasp on understanding my son and just thought we were stuck. I was at the end of my rope for sure. Since using the approaches outlined in this amazing document (while coupling with YouTube videos by Nate) I have a totally new perspective on the why’s of my son’s “behaviors”. My level of understanding has grown tenfold. Because of this, we are more bonded. My little 8-year-old boy is speaking more than ever! His skill sets are better than at any point in his little life.
