I have a 4 year old wonderful little girl with SPD. I know she is capable of helping with chores, such as cleaning up toys, putting her clothes away and other simple things. My problem is she doesn't always want to, and there is nothing to motivate her. We have tried a sticker chart to no avail, taking toys away that she has left out. When it is clean up time, she retreats to her bed and covers herself in her blankets. Does anyone have any ideas on how to motivate her, so her brother and I don't have to do everything?

Hi, have you tried asking her to do one thing at a time with simple instructions, My 8yr old has same prob and its too many instructuins and information that mixes him up. Give it a go.
