The Sometimes… / Other people… Board and accessories is designed to help some people to process their behaviours, how they impact other people, what they might do to change their behaviour and why that will benefit them and others.
How to use
Visual and kinaesthetic thinking
The boards are designed to support people who struggle with executive thinking. We suggest that the process of using the boards is as visual and kinaesthetic as possible. When there is something to write, then suggest the person writes it on one of the Gecko Notes or Tags off the board and then, separately, place the Gecko Note onto the board. Allow the person to choose colours of the Gecko Notes for the different tasks and steps to be done. Discuss their choice of colour.
This board is designed to help people to consider, visually, their behaviours and how they impact other people. The person can then consider what they might do to change their behaviour and why that will benefit them and others.
Get the person to write the inappropriate behaviour(s) on a Gecko Note and place it in the sometimes column. This is an opportunity to use colour to support the visual memory of the process. The effect on other people is written on a Gecko Note and placed on the board. The better behaviour is written on another Gecko Notes and placed on the “I will” column. A final Gecko Note has the reason for doing the right thing i.e. “This is” the kind thing or the right thing or helpful to my friends etc.
If you have any questions for Andrew Whitehouse about how to use the Sometimes… / Other People… Board or any of our Behaviour and Anxiety Intervention Tools then please complete the form and we will pass them to Andrew. He will reply directly to the email that you provide.
The Sometimes… / Other people… is manufactured as a sandwich consisting of a strong lightweight expanded foam base with a dry wipe laminate surface that enables you to write and wipe time and time again. Boards and accessories are suitable for use with most dry wipe pens.
“Gecko” laminate is so called because it is based on technology that mimics the tiny pads on a Gecko’s foot. “Gecko” laminate is an amazing new material, unique to OurBoards, that sticks to most smooth surfaces, such as laminated surfaces, wood, glass, whiteboards and smooth painted walls. Only dry wipe pens and cleaning sprays should be used.
