The Learning Renaissance

Motivating Learners with Asperger Syndrome

A thought-provoking video on the keys to motivating learners with Aspergers… I’d be interested in the thoughts of any who have Aspergers, or those who teach them as students, on the issues raised in this feature…

The Missing Piece: How to easily motivate someone with Asperger’s (and the huge mistake most parents make that hinders their Asperger child’s growth)

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.

    at first, i was very skeptical when i saw [another freaking pyramid diagram] but this is perfectly reasonable stuff here.

    i think the majority of resources you find like this are going to be next to worthless or will actually set you back– this one, pay attention. its a big, big clue you should hold onto.

    im still skeptical that most people can do the necessary things alluded to in this video (more resources, etc.) but youre doing well if you realize that most things are futile until then. because it will save you from unreasonable expectations (which lead to terrible misunderstandings and endless stress.)

    in other words, on top of the full time job of teaching, you have the full time job of catering to the environmental needs of the learned. obviously this is a formula that can be applied to ANY learner. but in this case, you may really need to be up to working two “full time jobs” simultaneously.

    i dont think most people are up to that, and that still affects the likelihood of the learners success (and resulting self-esteem and happiness.) i am also concerned about the workload for the teacher, although that is beside the point im making here.
