So I don’t have patience. Bless you if you do. I do, however, have understanding. I understand my role with my clients and with CARD. I see my purpose and understand the behavior intervention plans and programs I am implementing. I understand the functions of my clients’ behaviors, be it appropriate or problematic. I openly accept the fact that patience is not a quality I posses with confidence knowing that I am an understanding person. I believe the beauty of my shortcoming lies in the following statement: Patience can so easily run out. Understanding, on the other hand, never will.
It’s been over a year since Jack Riley was diagnosed with autism and ten months since he began ABA therapy. Cheryl and Mike discuss how feeding used to be a nightmare and how this has radically changed for the better. Jack Riley used to not feed himself and his diet was limited to apple sauce, yogurt and bananas. His diet has since expanded greatly and he is now more willing to try new foods.
The CARD Virginia School is a year-round private day school for students with autism spectrum disorders. Students get ABA therapy throughout the day along with following a school curriculum. The CARD Virginia School is located in Alexandria, Virginia at 5400 Shawnee Road Suite 208.
