First annual cri-du chat week
The cry of a child with Cri-Du-Chat is like that of a meowing kitten. This is due to an underdeveloped larynx and nervous system
Focus on the positives- what the child can do for themselves to build self confidence
Maintain a calm environment and provide consistency
plan activities for the child to expend energy while developing hand/eye coordination
If the child becomes over active redirect to a quiet activity or play soft music
Follow guidelines of PT
Have a daily plan- consistency is key
Provide picture clues so the child can anticipate what comes next
Use clear simple instructions
Use recommendations of ST- may include simple signs
Give instructions in a way the child can understand
Set goals that are achievable
Each child will be individual in their needs and abilities!!!
