|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Arya focused on further developing her skill loose lead outside around distractions. We focused on this skill to build her engagement and improve her impulse control around the outside environment. Arya was initially distracted and struggled to show engagement. However, as the session progressed the trainer introduced her known skill drop to help redirect her focus. This worked well, she began to ignore the environment and walk well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Arya focused on further developing her skill drop within the busy classroom environment. We focused on this skill as the trainers have noticed she struggles to drop on the trainer's side, she wants to walk around and drop in front of the trainer. To assist her in dropping to the left side the trainer went back to basics and lured her into position. While doing this she continued to struggle to drop on the side. The trainer then used a wall to further assist her. This worked well, she began to follow a lure and drop well.||Focus: Back to Basics||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Arya continued to focus on further developing her skill drop on the trainer's left side. We continued to focus on this skill as she struggled in her previous session. The trainer began using a lure and the wall as a guide, both these tools were faded as the session progressed. Arya performed well, she continued to drop on the side despite the reduced help. We would recommend continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
