Prevention Assistance 

  • 1. HELP ME TO FOCUS – Please teach me through my sense of touch. I need “hands on” and body movement.
    2. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT – Please give me a structured environment where there is a dependable routine.
    3. WAIT FOR ME, I’M STILL THINKING – Please allow me to go at my own pace. If I am rushed, I get confused and upset.
    4. I’M STUCK, I CAN’T DO IT! – Please offer me options for problem solving. If the road is blocked, I need to know the detours.
    5. IS IT RIGHT? I NEED TO KNOW NOW – Please give me rich and immediate feedback on how I am doing.
    6. I DIDN’T FORGET, I DIDN’T HEAR IT IN THE FIRST PLACE! – Please give me directions one step at a time, and ask me to say back what I think you said.
    7. I DIDN’T KNOW I WASN’T IN MY SEAT! – Please remind me to stop, think, and act.
    8. AM I ALMOST DONE? – Please give me short work periods with short term goals.
    9. WHAT? – Please don’t say “I already told you that.” Tell me again, in different words. Give me a signal. Draw me a symbol.
    10. I KNOW IT’S ALL WRONG, ISN’T IT? – Please give me praise for partial success. Reward me for self-improvement, not just for perfection.
    11. BUT WHY DO I ALWAYS GET YELLED AT? – Please catch me doing something right and praise me for the specific positive behavior. Remind me about my good points when I am having a bad day.

Sexting Prevention 

How to talk to teens about sexting: Learn why they do it and what to say about it.

Advancements in technology have opened up a new and potentially dangerous way for teens to explore their sexuality: sexting.
Sexting is the sharing and receiving of sexually explicit messages and nude or partially nude images via cellphone. Sexts may be sent as regular text messages or through apps, like Snapchat, Kik and WhatsApp. Teens may sext for a variety of reasons. They may be trying to establish intimacy with a boyfriend or girlfriend, impress a crush, or be funny. Others may feel pressured into sexting by boyfriends or girlfriends who may threaten to break up with them if they don't send a picture.
