Here are some additional aspects of children’s extremely intense interests that I could discuss, if only I had more space (and more expertise):
- Interests can play a big role in children’s identity formation.
- Parents can use even the narrowest of interests to introduce their children to the larger world.
- Occupational therapists (and other therapists) can incorporate children’s interests into their therapies.
- Parents and teachers can tap into children’s interests to engage them with their school work.
Are there any other questions I should pursue about children’s extreme interests? If so, please write them in the Comments section, below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
