It can be heartbreaking when a child shows little or no interest in age-appropriate activities. A lack of appropriate ways to occupy time can result in an increase in self-stimulatory behavior, limited social interactions, and fewer opportunities to teach functional communication and other important skills. “Expanding Interests and Activities” uses video examples and step-by-step instruction to show parents and teachers how to successfully develop and expand a child’s interests and activities.
In this module we’ll cover these learning objectives:
- List three benefits of expanding your child’s interests and activities.
- Describe how to choose new interests and activities to be developed.
- Implement the steps involved in developing new interests and activities.
