Applicable To: Groups or Individuals
CAPPD Concepts: Predictable
What It Is:Have children look for certain objects (yellow star, etc) around the room. Repeat the activity often.
Why It Helps: Finding items where you expect them to be, and repetition in general, provides predictability, which decreases hyper-arousal. Repetition is also necessary for the brain to build new pathways and leads to competence and skill development.
