Jessica's favourite colour
Jessica was at music therapy the other day, when the therapist wanted her to participate in an activity using a bell.
The therapist asked me what was Jessica’s favourite colour, as she felt Jessica would be more motivated by a bell in a colour that she liked. I hazarded a guess at red or pink (these are the colour tops she always chooses to wear, but equally most of her clothes are either pink or red, so I am not sure how much this reflects her choices or mine!) But the therapist only had 3 bells- yellow, blue and green. I told Jessica that she had to choose one of these as this was all there was, but she looked at them all, and then pointedly turned them all down.
The therapist then had to go and find a red bell and bring it back for Jessica, who immediately reached out and rang the bell, and started participating in the planned activity! So I guess I was correct that red might be a favourite colour!!
