Success With Positive Associations

This is a exercise that has caused Tink a great deal of frustration and anxiety. Its a exercise the physio has trouble with, in fact the physio has trouble getting Eirinn to perform most exercises because of the negative associations of physical correction and physical guiding- asking her to grip a flat surface that Eirinn doesn’t have the skills to do.

Yet when the surface is changed to one she can grip, motivation is added. Instant feed back and placement of reinforcement and positive reinforcement is used Tink performs the “pull to stand from sitting” with out much trouble.
