Background: My DS, almost 6, has High Functioning Autism and can't handle certain things for to long. Like being at a water park with the water splashing and the kids yelling or at the Mall with the echoing or at Wal-Mart. He looses his mind and starts acting up in an attempt to get out of the situation. 90% of his meltdowns are avoidance.
Problem: I have to go Grocery shopping today. Like I HAVE to and not a short trip either. It will be a pretty decent trip. I usually go after they both kids are in bed and DH is home so I don't have to take him but this won't work today.
Idea:To allow DS to play his Gameboy while shopping. Normally any games are reserved for 30 min before bed. I was planning on giving him a 'no count' reward. Where is I didn't get to the number 4 before we got to the car he could have a prize.
