Passion First!

Why Interests are Important?

Motivation

This is a program that makes great use of a child's interests. We have taken out the question or concern whether or not a behavior is a self-stimulatory behavior. We use the child's interests because children do extremely well when they are excited about what they are doing. Autism is very challenging to treat so we want to ensure your child is as motivated as possible.

 

Best Reinforcer

A child's interests can be the greatest reinforcer one can find. As opposed to a food/candy reinforcer or token items like stickers, an interest can provide a reciprocal activity. Why not provide something that encourages participation?

 

Provides Further Opportunites

Providing an activity based on the child's interest can also provide new opportunities as you can build on or allow the activity to evolve while transforming it into a two-person event.
