Helping learner to transition to a board

Hi everyone

Currently I am transitioning the buttons to a central place/board. I did move the buttons for weeks before inch by inch and consolidated them in the middle of the living room.
As I saw that the learner is really confused and not really using the buttons I removed all the buttons besides his most favourite one β€œplay” and my favourite one β€œall done” πŸ˜‚.

My learner would press the button sometimes but not compared to the previous usage. So I thought I would try to go back to basics.

In the beginning my learner started to use the buttons when I put them on a blanket. So I tricked him with me blanket on top of the tiles and after a few minutes he started to use the play button as he used before πŸ˜ƒ

So if your learner struggles, it might be helpful to comfort him with small things which he liked in the first place 😊.

Planing the place for the soundboard

Hi everyoneΒ 

I am planning to transition the buttons to a soundboard. Before I start I want to find the best location for it so I don’t have to move it again and set back the progression.Β 

Did anyone had experience that the learner liked a place better than the another? And if so, which place is better? More central where is a lot of movement or a little bit quieter in a corner.Β 

Perhaps not to near to the wall? I feel like my learner doesn't use the button if I put it to close to a wall.

Any experience with it?

Savannah cat energy and the "play" button

πŸ₯‰ πŸ₯ˆ πŸ₯‡ 🎬 πŸ”˜ πŸ—ƒοΈ πŸ—¨οΈ 🐈
Is anyone else here with a savannah cat?Β 

Matjes has so much energy as a savannah cat that if he is in play mode he would press the "play" button for hours ^^.

As we are in the early stages of button training, we don't have the "later" button yet. So I am continuously playing with him for hours if he demands playtime because I want to reinforce his usage of the buttons.Β 

Has anyone made the same experience?Β
