Dynamic Thinking Experiment
I never realized how limited Javi's ability to solve simple problems that require some amount of dynamic thinking. Problem solving like this occurs on a daily basis with out even realizing it. We tend to take this ability for granted, but for some children with an ASD this type of problem solving can be difficult when they are accustomed to static or rote responses.
We have not begun RDI or had any type of parent training on how to structure goals for RDI. The only training I have had on the subject is from a 2-day parent training conference and reading information on the internet. I just thought it would be an experiment to gage how fast or slow Javi could come up with an answer to a problem that required dynamic thinking. We are hoping to begin RDI soon.
