A simple but effective tool you can use at home is as simple as mirrors! We have a full-length mirror in the lounge, one on the back of the front passenger seat for joe to use in the car and one on the wall in the shower.
It’s amazing the body awareness, facial expressions and language practice that has taken place from this simple tool. He’s got every opportunity to copy things he’s seen. To see what his face looks like when happy or sad. To see himself dressed or naked. To make sense of sensations like having his hair washed or teeth brushed. To see someone he sees everyday standing next to him in his reflection. It makes so much sense doesn’t it? If you haven’t tried it, give it a go! You’ll be amazed 🙂
