The Process is more important than the outcome.
When we focus only on the outcome, we miss the small steps of progress we made to get there. When I made Layla’s visual calendar, the outcome was to teach her the date, days, months, and years so she can use that knowledge to help with life skills such as her date of birth.
Even though she does this daily, I felt I needed to use another resource to support her as to me I felt it was not sinking in.
I was wrong. When Layla went to change the date from the 30th June to the 1st July she said, mummy whenever it is the first, the month always changes!
It’s the small steps that lead to the progress we want.
