I tried, she did not like it. Glad she is drinking water now, I hope it's not just a streak of luck.
Does the school provide enough support if they don't allow the shadow ABA therapist?
Yes, they have para professionals who will be trained in special needs. I am talking about USA.
Some public schools will have the autism program. There will be a separate class with 1 special education teacher and few paras .the class would have maximum 10 kids. So mostly it will be 1 :1.
The class will be structured in compartments. So Martha in 1 cubicle. Next science in 2 cubicle. Like that
Water - 5oz
I got this - Think Fun Roll and Play Game for Toddlers
I am just having her do the actions on the cards. To avoid her obsessively lining up the cards, I am having her put the cards in a shoe box with a slit. We will get to rolling the dice and picking the cards by color later. Though she may get bored of it before we get there.
My ABA therapist used to visit the class once a month. The class teacher and therapist used to communicate with each other. ABA techniques were taught by the therapist to the paras according to my kids needs

I am practicing taking turns with her in case she does go to day care.
Doing an 'Accept No' program with her (something like this - How to Teach Your Child to Accept Being Told “No”) We did this earlier, but restarting it again because she is back to square one due to inconsistency across caregivers.
Fine motor: scribbling/drawing, scoop/dump beans into a cup with a spoon
Cognitive: Sorting colors (with teddy bears and alphabets)
Pretend play: 'Hop little bunny' song with teddy bears, dinos
Alphabets: BINGO song with those alphabets, sorting colors using magnetic alphabets
Other: Play with rhythm sticks
We had the hardest time with sorting colors which is a current ABA goal of hers. We have this set (it's so cute) It turns out she hates the teddies falling down in the cups, so as soon as they fall she gets upset and starts throwing everything. By chance, I used a sheet with colors on it instead of cups and she immediately started doing better. Now I am having her put the teddies to sleep on the sheet and she is okay with that.
