Over a year ago, I posted about GL taking the garbage out. After one of the many professionals he's seen pointed out that verbal prompts are the hardest to fade, I typed up a written checklist, which we keep on the refrigerator. When he stops working, or seems confused, I ask, "What's next?" and he reads the next item on his checklist and does it. I still have a dream that someday he will take out the garbage all by himself, but at some point in the last three months, he has gotten to the point where, on a good day, having him take out the garbage is very slightly less work than doing it myself!
