Do you want to increase your loved one’s motivation and ability to do more of the everyday things? Of course, you do. We all want our loved one to be growing their independence. So I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to prepare this incredible workshop that I’ve got coming up on January 25, at 7 pm, ET, and it’s called the ‘Growing Independence Workshop.’ And it’s all about teaching you a five-step system to support your loved one to grow their independence safely.
It’s specifically designed for parents and caregivers that have a loved one with a developmental disability. So, inside the growing independence workshop, we will be covering three main things. And by the way, there’s a link below, where you can click to sign up and join this live workshop on Zoom for free.
So we’re going to start by helping you understand the real reasons why your loved one is not motivated and why your loved one is not growing their independence. So we’re going to dive into that we’re going to help you understand maybe the learned helplessness that your loved one has developed, the family dynamics that keep that learned helplessness in place, and how the relationship between you and your loved one is keeping your loved one unmotivated.
Then we’re going to shift into talking about how you can learn to decrease the level of prompting or telling that you do have your loved one do things, whether that’s making the bed, making meals or doing the dishes. So I want to give you some tools to decrease that level of prompting. And to increase that level of motivation your loved one has to be doing more of those everyday things on their own.
And we’re also going to work to build up your loved one’s capability at home and doing that in a way where it increases the level of safety that your loved one has. So you’re going to learn this five-step process around growing your loved one’s independence, and I know it’s going to be super helpful.
So again, it all happens live on January 25. You’re going to want to be there live on zoom at 7 pm ET; I’ve got a link below for you to click on and register for free.
It’s going to be awesome. There’s going to be an amazing group of supportive, like-minded families that are all working and looking to grow their loved one’s independence.
