Do your neuro-diverse children (let’s call them “learning differences”) pay attention to other children?
Far more than they pay attention to you as parents?
So, here is what we did for academics during the recent Hurricane Harvey school hiatus:
Photos of academic and social-emotional learning for John.
It’s magic. Peer pressure, from the inside out.
If I had tried to get him to do this…….oh, we would have had such push-back.
Just add a few peer models, and everything changes.
Miraculous teaching moments!
Nothing gets John’s attention like another kid.
So, I use that. Shamelessly.
Cutting his own food in the restaurant: His happy face here because his buddies were doing it also.
May I suggest you build your child’s village?
There are so many pro-active ways.
With huge payout.
Peace be with us.
