These termites with incredibly small brains have the most stunning process of teamwork. Although so small – when they work together they create something so much bigger than themselves.
This made me think about our role as therapists/teachers/parents working with children, only when we work together can we truly achieve greatness. Good communication and team work is essential for the best outcome for our kids. I always encourage a parent to complete The Listening Program with their child. Two significant benefits:
- A beautiful message of solidarity, we are doing this to be the best we both can be. Not something is broken and I am trying to fix you.
- As a parent of a child with a challenge we have our own stress that needs support so we can be part of that essential team that our child needs.
