Video 1 - school - recognising letters


Goal - to recognise the alphabet and sequence them into the correct order


Outcome - Ashton needed some prompting to begin this activity so I placed the letters in sequence. He then proceeded to place the letters in order, at times he went to place his letter of choice in the sequence however I was able to redirect him.

Video 2 - school - writing the alphabet


Goal - to write the alphabet independently in sequence


Outcome - Ashton made stroking motions for every letter of the alphabet, for some letters I held his arm to try and show Ashton the motion in which we write letters.

Video 3 - school - math sheets 1a 1b


Goal - to complete math worksheets


Outcome - Ashton was able to complete 6 math worksheets today, 1D 1E 1F with each sections having two pages to complete. Ashton wasn’t overly excited about this activity today however after some encouraging Ashton was able to count each section and made a stroking motion for each answer.

Video 1 - school - recognising letters


Goal - to recognise the alphabet and sequence them into the correct order


Outcome - At the beginning Ashton didn’t show any interest in participating in the activity so I gave him his water timer for a minute. We then continued with the activity and eventually Ashton was able to sequence the alphabet with some assistance from me.

Video 3 - school - math sheets 1a 1b


Goal - to complete math worksheets


Outcome - Ashton was able to complete 6 math worksheets today, 1A 1B and 1C with each sections having two pages to complete. Ashton still needed some encouragement to work out the Answers

30/7/20


[30/7/20, 5:43:38 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 30/07/20 Video 1 - Letter recall (acc literacy program)

Goal - to line up the alphabet in the correct order as I sing each letter.


Outcome - Ashton came to the table nicely to begin his lessons today. At first Ashton wasn't really participating so I modelled grabbing the letters as I sang them. After a few times of doing this I decided to use another approach and hand Ashton each letter as I sang it to encourage his participation. Ashton placed down each letter as I handed it to him.







[30/7/20, 5:58:23 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 30/07/20 Video 2 - Letter writing (acc literacy program)

Goal - to write each letter of the alphabet.


Outcome - I handed Ashton his pencil and began to sing the alphabet. As I sang each letter I moved it above where Ashton had to write it. At first Ashton wanted to draw hard dots (for letters A and B) and he threw his pencils. Once I picked up the pencils and got him back on task he moved through the activity quickly. Although Ashton didn't write the letters correctly he was able to do strokes for each letter and it appeared that he was looking at the letters as I placed them down. Ashton did his writing for each letter in the correct box and held his pencil nicely.





[30/7/20, 6:08:28 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 30/07/20 Video 3 - Math (acc math program) sheets 1a, 1b and 1c

Goal - to circle the number that matches the blocks.


Outcome - For the first question on Ashton's math sheet I had to give him some assistance to get him going but he was able to circle the correct number on his own. As we moved along with each question Ashton displayed more independence, he was able to place the blocks on himself, count them and circle the correct number. Occasionally I had to bring Ashton back to task by assisting him, for example I would instruct him to count the blocks or circle the number. If Ashton counted his blocks incorrectly I would instruct him to count them again. Tomorrow we are moving on to the systematic review sheets for this section.

Video 3 - school - writing the alphabet in sequence


Goal - to write the alphabet independently in sequence


Outcome - Ashton was able to make stroking motions on the paper as his interpretation of a letter, he also began to make dots over the page. Even with the use of the reinforcer, Ashton only attempted to write a few of the letters.

Video 1 - homer


Goal - letter recognition


Outcome - Ashton needed some encouragement to complete each section, he would go to press any picture without listening to the task. I held his hands/arms to encourage his to wait and listen, he was able to answer most sections independently.









[26/7/20, 5:44:14 pm] Sami Nanny: 26/07/30


Video 4 - tracing/writing


Goal - to independently write his own name while using correct pencil grip


Outcome - to encourage Ashton to trace along the dotted lines I did some hand over hand. Ashton was able to write the letter o independently which was great!

Video 5&6 - pretend play


Goal - spontaneous play


Outcome - Ashton had lots of fun playing with skye and I. Ashton and I were monsters and skye was an astronaut. Ashton was able to use his imagination as to what he wanted to come next in our game and what materials he needed to execute the idea.





26/7/20

It has been becoming more difficult to connect with Ashton through play.. he is not interested in playing unless it is fighting creatures and even then he does not really play with you. He just does not want to draw or play with table top activities as much as he did. He loves the above games where you act out but not with items.



25/7/20


[25/7/20, 5:31:14 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 25/07/20 Video 1 - Number recognition

Goal - to place the correct number next to the corresponding dots.


Outcome - At first Ashton didn't show much focus towards this activity. I initially helped/modelled the activity. We counted the dots together and I had to direct Ashton to pick up the first number and place it next to the dots. As we went along Ashton became more independent and in the end he was able to count the dots and place the corresponding number on his own. I kept this activity short so it wasn't too much for Ashton.




[25/7/20, 5:32:04 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 25/07/20 Video 2 - Sequencing

Goal - to sequence an event in the correct order.


Outcome - Ashton was able to successfully sequence two sets of events. The first event was making a pizza and Ashton was able to put the steps in the correct order. As he sequenced each step I spoke about what was happening and Ashton joined in. Next Ashton sequenced the stages of a plant growing and like the pizza I discussed what was happening at each step. I thought two sets of events was an achievable amount for Ashton.





[25/7/20, 5:32:52 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 25/07/20 Video 3 - Turn taking with Anastasia

Goal - to take turns playing the porcupine pop game.


Outcome - Ashton was able to take turns with Anastasia and he enjoyed the game. He did need some help when it came to understanding how the game worked (it was his fist time playing) and he was confused that the dice only showed the numbers one and two. When the game was finished I asked Ashton if he wanted to play and he said no. I told him to tell Anastasia that he was finished playing and also asked him to say thank you to her. Ashton was able to do this with prompting and encouragement.




[25/7/20, 5:42:15 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 25/07/20 Video 4 - Jurassic Park LEGO

Spontaneous play


Outcome - Ashton enjoyed playing with his new LEGO set this afternoon. He had initially wanted to play on his own but eventually we ended up having a fun game together. During our play I asked Ashton lots of questions to create a verbal interaction with him. He gave me lots of descriptive answers. Ashton definitely had his own ideas of how our play was going to be and he gave me instructions on which dinosaur to use. Several times I tried to change his agenda but he would steer me back to his ideas.







I have changed Ashton’s motivator from iPad to an identified toy etc that he loves.


[24/7/20, 7:47:50 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 24/07/20 Video 1 - Letter recall (acc literacy program)

Goal - to line up the alphabet in the correct order as I sing each letter.


Outcome - I tried to do this task following the tutorial video I had watched provided by the school. I explained the activity to Ashton and told him we would be using a timer. Ashton didn't really want to participate today so I tried modelling the activity. Ashton became upset and left the table, I was unable to get him to return.




[24/7/20, 7:49:50 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 24/07/20 Video 2 - Sequencing

Goal - to sequence an event in the correct order.


Outcome - Ashton was able to sequence one event (a turtle being hatched from an egg). He initially needed guidance. Again Ashton didn't want to continue so I stopped the activity as he had achieved success with one sequencing event.





[24/7/20, 7:50:44 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 24/07/20 Video 3 - Supermarket game

Goal - to crawl with a basket and collect various items (gross motor).


Outcome - Ashton was able to follow my initial instructions for this game. I had instructed him to push the basket and collect the toaster which he did. After that I wanted Ashton to come back to me with the toaster but he continued on to collect the smoothies. I tried asking Ashton what he had put in the basket but he did not answer me. At this point Ashton ran away laughing. I was able to bring him back to the activity and I guided him to the last two items which I let him collect quickly.

[23/7/20, 5:28:56 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 23/07/20 Video 1 - Matching worksheet (acc) uppercase and lowercase

Goal - to correctly match an uppercase letter to the corresponding lowercase letter and trace over each letter.


Outcome - Ashton seemed to enjoy this lesson. I used toys/items as props to engage Ashton in the learning experience. I went through each letter with Ashton and showed him the uppercase and matching lowercase letters (we also went through the sounds that the letters make). Ashton successfully matched up the letters under my guidance. When it came to the tracing portion of this lesson Ashton needed my assistance, rather than doing hand over hand I let Ashton hold onto my hand so he could feel the motion of me tracing the letters.






[23/7/20, 5:30:31 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 23/07/20 Video 2 - Cut and paste worksheet (acc) 'k' and 't' sounds

Goal - to cut and paste pictures under their corresponding ending sound.


Outcome - At first I went through the ending sounds with Ashton and than showed him the pictures we had to cut out. He wasn't incredibly keen to cut out the pictures so I said he only needed to cut out three. Ashton was able to select the correct column for two out of the three pictures. He was able to use his scissors fairly well whilst I held the paper.







[23/7/20, 5:31:55 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 23/07/20 Video 3 - Writing worksheet (acc) words that end with the 'ck' digraph

Goal - to complete (write) words using a picture cue.


Outcome - Ashton wasn't very interested in this worksheet so I guided him through each step. I asked Ashton what each picture was and he was wriggling around a lot so I ended up telling him the answers, he was able to identify the last picture though. When it came to the writing portion I knew that would be difficult for Ashton (I had more wanted him to identify the pictures and look at the words). I ended up letting him hold onto my hand whilst I wrote the completed word to match the picture. I knew this may have been a difficult worksheet but I wanted to give it a go to assess Ashton's capabilities as sometimes he can surprise us with what he can do.





[22/7/20, 6:11:58 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 22/07/20 Video 1 - Cutting with scissors

Goal - to independently cut along a dotted line using the correct scissor grip.


Outcome - Ashton wasn't keen for this activity today. I had initially wanted him to cut five lines to earn five tokens but I ended up having to decrease that to two. It took a lot of persistence today to get Ashton to cut along the two lines, he was able to hold his scissors correctly though.

### Further strengthen Ashton’s cutting skills by cutting play dough .



[22/7/20, 6:12:57 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 22/07/20 Video 2 - Star Program 1 receptive language lesson 2 (attending)

Goal - to attend to the following requests: sit down, stand up, look at me, hands down.
