The difference is defiantly there. I have seen it every morning and most of every afternoon this week. At first, the change was subtle. But now, I can see the big impact.
His change in attitude, compliance, task maintaining and overall general behavior has taken a polarizing shift. And for the BETTER!
Bryce has really "grown" in the last six days. Since about Friday or Saturday. We noticed lately that he is starting to be more responsible with his personal property. Although OTHERS' property, we are still working on with him. But he is now actually asking to use something (like Hayley's DS game) than just swiping it.
Also, he is keeping up better with maintaining his room. Of course he is a boy. He will have "messes". But as of late, he is trying harder to put the items in their proper places, make his bed and have his room mostly clean.
Also, since Monday morning, he has been eating his cereal, dressing, and redying his backpack in a sufficient and timely manner. I have barely needed to "crawl up his butt" to get him motivated and moving to ready for the school day. Even waking up is no longer a chore. He gets up BEFORE me (by a few minutes) and is ready to start the day with his breakfast.
The only real problem I have with Bryce now is that he expects me to get him his cereal right as HE is up and ready. He will even at times come in my room, literally in tears and claim he is "starving" and wants his cereal NOW because he is ready to eat.
Hey now, with all of the GOOD changes, you can't expect me to not still have a little excitement....
For Bryce having so many things wrong with him mentally, this is a HUUUUUUGE step for him, for me, and for our family as a whole. I will take whatever I can get that is POSITIVE in his care.
