"As children grow older, parents must give them greater freedom, including greater freedom to make mistakes. "

3 year old : Techniques appropriate for special needs?


I'm a pediatric speech-language pathologist and I frequently recommend John's books to my patients' parents. Many of my patients have some degree of cognitive impairment due to Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, etc. and I encourage parents to set up behavior management strategies consistent with the child's developmental age. Would John agree that his techniques can be effective in these populations as long as the parent selects techniques which match the child's developmental stage, not necessarily his or her chronological age?
