Sometimes "finding what works" is easy. It is obvious. It is rewarding.
Sometimes "finding what works" is hard. It is hidden. It is strenuous. And the rewards are few and far between.
With complex children "finding what works" is part art, part science, but mostly sheer determination based on the optimism that ...
and the beauty
of this unique person
is gonna shine!
A script on a recent email reminded me that
“When we treat people merely as they are, they will remain as they are.
When we treat them as if they were what they should be, they will become what they should be.”
Thomas S. Monson
As the summer continues may you rest in the understanding that work with complex children is
incredibly important. Lives can be transformed, precious unique lives ... and our lives too.
