She explains how to use every day situations to help create scripts they can use again and again. Emily also talks about the roles of family, extended family and mentors to aid this. Information on resources which can be used at home are given as well as general advice on how to embed scripts into social encounters and the importance of celebrating every step forward, no matter how small.
