People with Asperger Syndrome are very hard to motivate. They grow up taking the blame for everything and they just assume everything is going to be their fault or that they will make a mistake and mess up. It makes sense that it is hard to motivate someone with Asperger Syndrome to do simple things like clean their room, do laundry, or wash the dishes.It is hard for someone with Asperger Syndrome to understand how doing lower functioning skills will help them master the higher functioning skills in the long run. Travis gives some useful tips in this book for how to make sure someone with aspergers is motivated to learn the life skills that they need to learn. It is important that people with Asperger syndrome see the full visual picture in their head so they can visualize how doing what you want them to do will help them get what they want in the long run.Here is an excerpt from the book."It is hard to teach someone with Asperger Syndrome about taking responsibility but it can be done as I have been trying to take more and more responsibility for things and mistakes I have made in my life. I have made a ton of mistakes both social and in other areas of my life and I will talk about those in great detail in another book in the future.Taking responsibility of my own mistakes made it feel like I was being a failure. I was used to growing up taking the blame for everything. When something went wrong I was to blame for it because I was the kid that was different. I was never a real person like the other kids were at least according to the voices that I heard. The voices rang loud and clear in my head. They always blamed me for everything as well.It was very hard for me to get through high school and even more difficult to get through college.I really feel like someone with Asperger syndrome just needs to be reminded and encouraged that everything is not their fault. Just because they take ownership of their mistakes does not mean that everything is their fault or everything is to be blamed on them."
