TIP of the WEEK: Through Their Eyes

Matt has been in our adult program for several years. He tells me:

“If something in my schedule needs to change tell me as soon as you can… I might still get upset but if I have time to get used to it then it won’t be as bad. If you tell me right before something changes I get so overwhelmed and upset that I usually do something that I don’t mean to do”.

We all know that change is inevitable but Matt says it best- the more time to get used to the change, the better the outcome will be.
