Interdependence

As always, Kathie Snow at Disability is Natural has wise words for us. The newsletter I received today is about INTERDEPENDENCE. When we made the switch to a relationship approach to autism intervention, I realized the importance of INTERdependence, something we'd sacrificed on the altar of independence.

Kathie, I wish I'd read this when we were heavy in our behavioral intervention and work on INdependence (although I drank that kool-ade and was firmly entrenched in it, maybe I wouldn't have heard you).

The newsletter is HERE.

And in past blog entries of mine, I talked about some of my reflections on interdependence HERE, and HERE, and HERE.

From what I understand, behaviorists call it co-dependence and that is a baaaaaad thing! :-/
