Uh oh! Looks like a consequence for missing the bus is having to miss Special Olympics bowling. Leanne has already schooled us on actions and consequences. As she stated, Leanne missed the bus because of her "routines". Apparently she was still cutting the crossword puzzle out of the morning paper when the bus came and because this is a part of her rigid routine, she was not willing to stop in order to go catch the bus.
Having a set of routines or "grooves" that one must follow, is very common in adults with Down Syndrome. These routines provide a sense of order and structure; they also help individuals with Down Syndrome cope with a world that often moves more quickly than they can process. Many of these routines are very beneficial but sometimes they can interfere with one's ability to transition on to the next task. Hence, Leanne missed the bus. If you'd like to read more about "grooves," I found an interesting article written by Dennis McGuire, PhD. http://www.dsamn.org/Files/file/adult_issues/TheGroove.pdf. I also enjoyed reading about Jimmy's grooves over at The Lucas Family Blog.
