“Welcome to Vegas”, by Tracie Hoppis parent from Yakima-"When Andy was diagnosed with Autism, our lives were anything but serene and peaceful. Sleepless nights, wild tantrums and marathon meltdowns, food phobias, restrictive and repetitive behaviors, invisible “triggers”, and daily sensory overload. I think our lives more closely resembled Las Vegas! "
Finally, Karlene Umbaugh of Whatcom P2P uses mini containers of Playdough as a hands on activity during her training. She sets these out on the table and asks that each participant shape the Playdough into an animal that best represents themselves. Toward the end of the training she allows time for each participant to explain their animal. This offers insight about that participant for her to keep in mind when making a match.
