get ready to test out - tip
Leave space. Space between your words. Space between one cue and the next. Space for your student to process what you've asked. Silence is powerful. Occasional silence can wake a client up and out of the "zone" where they may be tuning you out. Use your words wisely, sparingly and powerfully. Use silence the same way.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
