Starting Carryover with Young Kids

By Pam Marshalla

Q: Is there an age constraint for starting self-awareness techniques for carryover? My son is 6 years old.

Carryover ideas should start right from the first day of therapy, no matter the client’s age. That means that you are planning for and thinking about and stimulating for carryover from the first day, and you are dropping in ideas here and there.

For example, let’s say your child is learning to keep his tongue in his mouth. He can work on that during a therapy session, and he also can be encouraged to keep his tongue in “while we are driving to the store.” That way you are taking his therapy ideas right into his “real world.”
