VESPER has been hard at work with Ashley on continuing to refine skills and everyday default behaviors. Vesper continues to explore working with a manual chair versus someone who is ambulatory. She has also been practicing transferring skills different handlers, which is something she has struggled with in the past, and she is looking really sharp. Vesper’s training Ashley hopes to see Vesper run through pre-placement testing soon. Way to go Vesper!

  • Skills being learned: Practicing skills learned so far with different handlers and strengthening default check in around various distractions.
  • Recent field trips: Ikea, Metrotown Mall, Canadian Tire, Robert Burnaby Park, various training field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Vocalizing when curious.
  • Potential career path: Service
