This chapter addresses the process of working on the plan for reducing accommodation. It is important to keep a log and monitor progress. Writing down how it goes and what difficulties are encountered will help parents to figure out the challenges, troubleshoot and plan solutions, and identify changes that might be needed to make the plan more feasible. The chapter then gives parents an idea of what to expect as they begin to reduce the target accommodation. As parents continue to implement their plan, it is as important as ever to keep up their supportive responses. Parents can give the child a lot of praise and positive reinforcement for handling the change in accommodation. Parents can also use rewards to show that they are proud of the child for coping. The chapter also discusses the meaning of success in implementing the plan, both for the parents and for the child, at this stage.
