Always be patient and reassuring right when a person is going through this process. They may not want to talk or be involved or even eat anything And that is OK.

Please notice that the misspellings are constant . If they were one or two mistakes, I wouldn't bother to tell you about it. I kept noticing different kind of the misspellings throughout these courses. I will give you an example below regarding this section only: Introduction to Activity Planning - Quiz "Choicing activities that the person you support enjoys is ideal" . That is only one example of the misspellings in the quizzes. I cannot keep track of all the misspellings I have encountered since I started these courses; that's overwhelming and it keeps slowing me down!
