Motivating your child with Aspergers Syndrome

Sun 8 May 2016 4:02pm

Hi

 

I was just looking around the net today and came across this interesting link.  I've signed up to the Webinar that's coming up on 10th May so will try to remember to post more after that.  Having an undiagnosed son in his mid - 20's who spends all day every day sitting in his room all day playing games, I found this really interesting.   It's not a quick fix but with a bit of work this might just work.

 

The commentator is a young man with a diagnosis of Aspergers and he is the Co-Founder of the group providing this information.     It's called "How to Easily Motivate someone with Aspergers".

    I've watched and read a few of their articles/videos and they all made perfect sense, especially "defence mode." Some of their things are quite pricey but when I have more time I'll look into it a bit further. I emailed them last year and got a lovely email back from them which was nice but I've also seen them critised on other forums but what works for one person might not work for another but sometimes anything is worth a try! Would love to hear some feedback from the webinar x

    I've come across these guys too Joise. I really like them, and they are saying something different to the usual advice that's out there. So if you've 'tried everything ' and nothing has worked it is certainly worth a try! I do agree some of it is a bit pricey, but there is quite a bit of information in their free stuff. 

    My son is 19 now , diagnosed at age 16, and I actually come to some of the same conclusions. For me personally it would have saved a lot of time and heartache if I had found this kind of advice a bit earlier. There is no one size fits all solution though. Wouldn't that be nice! 

    I really like the pyramid of skills thing they do, it made lots of sense to me anyway.  The idea that there's very little point working on social skills and executive functioning (a huge issue for my 19 year old! ) when someone is overloaded with sensory issues and unable to really pay attention to what is going on around them. Its really interesting stuff.
