Try For Inclusion

Welcome to Episode #14 of The Parenting Biz Podcast - coming to you every single Monday. Now let's chat with this week's featured Guest, Randa Habelrih. So this week, our entire interview will be crafted around the NRL team The Sydney Roosters. Welcome to our second match of the season called “Try For Inclusion”   Practice, Practice, Practice - all sports and life are about practice - actually DOING the activity over and over again Children with autism do like routine Breakdown the tasks into very simple steps and practice those tasks over and over again Practicing within the family Practice joy and gratitude The key is having a goal, implementing it, repeating it & practicing it, then you’ll develop a skill Order is your own order Stop comparing yourself and your autistic child’s achievements to other people Use your own benchmarks   Working as a TEAM - we all want to feel apart of something (that could be a team, a community, a company, etc) which is why it’s INCREDIBLE Randa pioneered MATES = Mates Assisting To Engage Socially. Everyone wants to belong Sense of social engagement is crucial MATES is a leadership program, peer lead & empowering the student cohort to change the standards of inclusion in their school Apply to be a MATES leader  Leaders lead the way by example We all need a coach in an area we need to improve our skill set   Winning & Losing Matches - the question is, is life all about keeping score? I’m sure the answer is debatable... Always have a goal your working towards Check out Randa’s event called “Autism and Me” “Model MATES” is a fashion industry event, which highlights that even in the most elite of industries, there is room for the inclusion of people living with disabilities.
