“Behavior” at the Tablelunch table final

I hear a lot about “behavior.” Technically, “behavior” is a noun, I’m told. I don’t think of it as a person, place, or thing, though. From my point of view, it’s a category of actions, which makes it a verb. This word, “behavior,” gets us into a lot of trouble.

I am sure you have heard this: “We could certainly do more if he didn’t have behaviors.”

That’s a pretty strong statement. How do you not have any behavior? That sounds like a really boring existence, and not one I want for anyone – especially one of the people I support or my own children…or me!

For the month of November – a month traditionally void of a full week of school – I’m going to focus on various aspects of “behavior” and healthy living for people with Down syndrome and related disabilities.

Send me your “table time behaviors” and we’ll work them through together! (Don’t worry, your confidentiality will be absolutely honored!)
