One small step for man…

One small step for man… one giant leap for Franklin

After becoming a hermit for the past few weeks, Franklin is now coping with a little walk every day 🙌🏻

We are showing him a ‘walk’ picture symbol and also a destination symbol. I’ve taken photos of little landmarks close to home (postbox, tree, street sign etc) to show him the destination we are walking to, and have increased the distance every few days or so. We started very small, just a few seconds (against a huge amount of resistance! 🙉) and have built it up to around 4-5 minutes in total.

I’m also using a Now & Next to show him he can have a small reward after completing the walk.

Thank you so much to Natalie Webb for your advice with this (and your endless support 🙏😍).
