There are four All Service Providers Mantras:
1) Child First Language
- The disability is something that people have, it does not define them.
2) All behavior is Communication
- Even school fits are a form of expression. In the case of children with autism, skimming (a type of self stimulation) is also communication.
3) Ability to Disability
- Using strengths or interests to act as a building block to learning harder topics.
- This focuses on what the child can do.
4) All Children can Learn
