Thanks for submitting such an interesting article. I really like this therapy model because it uses a topic that the child really likes and gives the child chances to be successful. However, I have a couple of questions regarding therapy using this model. When is it appropriate to switch from a contextualized to decontextualized situation? Also, how well do the skills learned in this therapy generalize to other settings and situations? Are we limiting the way the skills can be generalized by using only one central topic? If you have any insights on these questions please let me know. This therapy model is one that I might pursue in future years.
