FIND YOUR PASSION!  Ways to discover your inspiration/motivation:  Epiphany - A pivotal, life-changing experience can create a sudden and intense awareness of an underlying passion; an “aha!” moment.  Change – A major life change that alters one’s view on life and causes closer selfexamination as to the way one lives it. This examination challenges one to learn things about self that were previously unknown.  Intuition – One must be sense passion in order to identify it. Passion must be embraced fully, with fearlessness and strong conviction.  Experience - Most uncover passion gradually as a result of day-to-day experiences. One gets glimpses of it--courtesy of intuition--but may not understand its significance or heed its influence. Unless attention is paid to those experiences, one is likely to disregard them. One must listen to and interpret life’s signals and translate them into action.  Adapted and excerpted from The Passion Plan: A Step-by-Step Guide to Discovering, Developing, and Living Your Passion by Richard Chang

Universal Turing Machines (cont.)  A Universal Turing Machine (UTM) is capable of simulating an arbitrary Turing Machine M on an arbitrary input word w.  One possible UTM is a two-tape TM that may be described as:    The UTM simulates M by locating on the program tape the appropriate transition given the current state of M and the symbol on the work tape being scanned by its head When the transition is located, the UTM carries out the operation on the work tape There is a standard UTM equivalent to this two-tape UTM w    work tape Control Unit (M)    program tape

Mike’s Intervention Plan Teach Strategies Replacement Behavior: Appropriately express his need to calm down Specific Steps Mike will be taught to use his Dynamite to express his need to calm down. Replacement Behavior Steps: 1. An adult will program Mike’s AAT device to say “I need to calm down.” 2. A choice board will be built into the device by identifying 3-4 options from which Mike can select as his activity to calm down and identifying buttons to represent those choices. 3. One minute before transitioning from a preferred to a non-preferred activity or at the end of a preferred activity (if the timer has not gone off), the teacher/adult will remind Mike to use his replacement behavior. “Remember, If you start to get mad when you go to X, you can tell us you need to calm down.” 4. At the first sign of Mike beginning his screaming behavior (initial squeal), redirect Mike to use his replacement behavior by prompting him (most-toleast hierarchy) while saying “What do you need?” For example, initially the teacher will use physical prompting (hand-over-hand) to guide Mike in telling the adults that he needs to calm down. 5. Once Mike communicates “I need to calm down”, present him with the choice board of calming strategies and ask him, “What do you want?” 6. As soon as he is calm, praise him by saying “thank you for telling us what you need to calm down.”. 7. Allow Mike to engage in his choice until he is calm for 1-min. 8. If Mike does not return to his area, then start having a fun time in that area with those students present
