Tuesday is BINGO day at Cody's Day Program. It has been for years and for years, Cody has played with the same BINGO card.
Yesterday, while meeting with the program's coordinator concerning Cody's behavior, we realized that he is getting upset on Tuesdays because they switched his BINGO card. A very well meaning employee worked hard at making new cards in braille so Cody won't always have to play with the same one. The problem is, and I'll bet those of you with ASD children have already guessed, Cody has been playing with that same card for a long time. He is use to it. He wants to play with it and he wants it back.
Because I'm worried about the employees finding Cody's original card and think somebody may need to make him a new one, I asked Cody to give me the numbers. This is what he said:
B- 13, 3, 11, 10, 6
I- 25, 22, 19, 29, 16
N- 34, 37, free, 39, 42
G- 56, 50, 46, 58, 51
O- 61, 72, 65, 69, 71
Let's hope, for the sake of everyone's sanity, Cody's BINGO card is found before Tuesday rolls around again.
