Connect with Dr. Lynn Hellerstein:
“We asked Grace why she didn’t do her chores. And again we took the typical response: ‘There’s so much. I’ll never get done. I won’t have time to play. I just hate it.’ So we said to Grace, would you just write down what your daily chores would be. And you know at 10, and with all her significant learning problems, she only had a few chores like brush your teeth, get dressed in the morning, make her bed, and take her plate when she’s done eating and put it in the sink. That was about it but to Grace it was overwhelming. So we had her write them down and she could hardly write and she didn’t know how to spell so sometimes, she would just draw a picture or cut out a picture. So we listed the chores. And when she saw kind of the completion of the chores, she started understanding that, ‘Oh, this is not a list that goes on forever.’” – Dr. Lynn Hellerstein
