NG1 Intervention Overview
Using the SHAPE CODING™ System Not, No For Refusal
You will need:
Role play items, e.g. dolls, toy food.
- Through play and real life experiences, establish that the child understands and can use no / not to signal refusal or something not happening.
- Use shake of head, sign/gesture or symbol card (large black cross) to reinforce this concept.
- Set up role play, e.g. feeding a baby – lay out some foods a baby should not eat and a few they can, e.g. milk. Take turns in offering it to the doll/baby. Model refusal, e.g. “No/not the biscuit. Don’t eat that!’ Encourage the child to imitate.
