Scheduling Failure?

09 Sep

With so much concern about ensuring success at every learning opportunity for individuals with ASDs, I was a bit surprised today when a parent of a client reported to me, “I reminded her each day of the week for five days about the assignment. Come Friday, when the assignment was not done, I was not surprised.” Then, the surprising question, “Is it okay to let her fail like this? I knew she would, and every ounce of my being screamed, ‘Be a better parent!!’ Then, I thought, ‘Maybe this is how I can be the better parent for her.’ What do you think?”

Before I weigh in, please share your thoughts!
