|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Arlos first session we played with Red Light Green Light. Arlo had fun during this session and maintained a good level of engagement firnthe session. During this game we trained multiple different skills including drop, place and middle to keep him thinking. Arlo did well with all of these requests however struggle to hold duration with his drops. I would like to see duration in drop worked on at home, even if just short durations. Overall Arlo did a good job during this session||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For Arlos second session we worked on his recall skill. For this session we went outside to test his knowledge of this skill. Arlo struggles to focus when there are distractions and failed to recall when requested. Once distractions were removed Arlo showed a decent understanding if the skill and recalled 95% of the time. To help build this skill I would recommend working on short recalls in the backyard and the front yard under minimal distractions to help build value in the skill. Engagement games are also very beneficial when teaching a recall, specifically the 'treat toss' game.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Arlos final session we worked on emergency drops and duration. Arlo seemed a little distracted today so this was a good opportunity to get him thinking and maintaining durations for his drop skill. Arlo did seem to struggle to begin with but started to improve the longer the session went on. Completing multiple emergency drops and maintaining a good level of duration. To finish off Arlo made some artwork!||Focus: Duration||C|
