30/11/20

Social interaction- today when Ashton was watching ugly dolls he went to his sisters and told them to go with him. Together they lined up in front of the tv holding hands and together they “jumped into the tv” and became ugly dolls.



[28/11/20, 5:11:31 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 28/11/20 Video 1 - Matching task (same/different)

Goal - to circle items that are the same/different as required.


Outcome - Ashton was able to select the items that were the same in question one, however when it came to selecting the item that was different in question two he still wanted to find the ones that were the same. Ashton would draw a line selecting the three items that were the same so I ended up circling the one that was different in an effort to bring his attention to that concept.







[28/11/20, 5:13:37 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 28/11/20 Video 2 - Simple addition

Goal - to add together simple single digit numbers eg. 2 + 3 = 5. (addition and number recognition)


Outcome - Ashton was able to recognise each individual number that I showed him and he was able to place wooden counters down to represent each number. Occasionally I had to prompt Ashton to count the wooden counters. Ashton was able to successfully add up two simple single digit numbers with prompting to keep him on task.







[28/11/20, 5:15:59 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 28/11/20 Video 3 - Attention (light board cards)

Goal - to attend to materials (ie. light boards cards) presented on the workspace (ask Ashton to look at the card and identify what is on it - therefore attending to the light board card). (attending)


Outcome - Ashton really enjoyed this task and was able to attend to and identify each light board card. I would place two cards in front of Ashton and get him to attend to each card, as I did this Ashton came up with an excellent idea to combine the cards together. This was really fun and showed his imaginative side.







[28/11/20, 5:20:36 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 28/11/20 Video 4 - Time 4 Learning (colours) sentence slopes

Goal - to reorder jumbled words to make a correct sentence.


Outcome - This task is a little hard for Ashton as it involves reading, however he does enjoy it. Ashton likes choosing a person and helping them get to the top of the hill (the person progresses up the hill for each correct sentence). During this activity I helped Ashton select the correct order for each sentence, as I did this I used the mouse to hover over each word so Ashton could hear it read aloud. We did this activity twice and the second time round I asked Ashton what colour was mentioned in each sentence to ensure he was listening.





[28/11/20, 5:22:27 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 28/11/20 Video 5 - Hot tub high dive

Ashton enjoyed playing hot tub high dive with his sisters. He took turns and played three rounds versing each of his sisters. Part of the game is to spin the spinner to see how many times you get to press the button, Ashton would often press the button more than he should have. All the children had fun playing together.

Goal - to attend to materials (ie. picture cards) when laid upside on the workspace (ask Ashton to turn over the card and look at it - therefore attending to the picture card). (attending)


Outcome - Ashton was able to attend to each picture card that I placed down in front of him. Sometimes I had to ask a few times before he would turn the card over. Once Ashton turned the card over I would ask him the relevant question, as stated on the card and he had to select yes or no. Ashton was pretty cheeky during this time and he would select the incorrect answer. I'm sure Ashton new which one he was supposed to choose, but he was trying to be funny.

Outcome - Ashton was a little bit cheeky during this activity and initially wasn't sorting the items correctly (he does this because he likes the sound the computer makes when he puts things in the wrong spot). I continually encouraged Ashton during this task by reminding him he needed to get ticks to earn his good shop star. This encouragement seemed to help and Ashton began placing the items under the correct colour. In the end Ashton was able to sort all of the items correctly.

Giselle was supposed to take a turn after Ashton, however he was cheeky and had another turn. After this I ensured Ashton waited and watched his sisters by holding his hand and instructing him to watch from the side.
