Finding a Path to Employment


How can my family member relearn how to make choices?

When someone has to relearn choice-making, it helps to start with small, relatively unimportant choices. You might ask (more frequently) what your family member wants to do that day, what food for dinner, what flavor ice cream to get, what color to paint the bedroom, or what movie to watch. Provide many opportunities for the family member to choose increasingly important choices.This can be done even if the individual does not live with you. Follow the same principle of identifying opportunities for the family member to make choices. (Morris)
