2. Use task analysis to break the new activity into manageable steps for the individual. Each week OJ is given different jobs, the first session he was asked to prepare cucumber and tomatoes. I keep a mental note in my head of what he needs to do and then guide him through each step. I break down the whole activity by telling him when break time is, I give him a countdown towards this, and then a countdown towards the end of break time. I then tell him what time the session is finishing, I also give him a countdown towards the end of work experience. OJ finds it easier to do this; he quite likes doing different jobs throughout his time in the kitchen but likes to have warning of when he has to stop. |
3. Evaluate different ways of positively reinforcing the individual’s participation in the new activity. I give OJ lots of praise and encouragement throughout work experience, telling him how well he’s doing, smiling, and giving high fives.This could also be done by giving OJ a job he really enjoys doing after he’s done something difficult or something he doesn’t like doing. I also inform other members of staff of his progress so that they can praise his hard work as well. |
4. Develop a person-centred record to monitor the individual’s participation in the activity. See
