I would absolutely concur with the ChorePay concept for Autistic kids.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 14, 2012
After reviewing the chore management and financial educational system offered by ChorePay.com Dr. John R. Mace was quoted as saying:
“I would absolutely concur with the ChorePay concept for Autistic kids. One of the things that autistic kids need is structure, and to have a list of things that the child can perform to support the family/tribe is to contribute to it. The core concept is to get the child to see that they are contributing to the benefit of the family. This builds the concept of looking outside of themselves to others, and how that impacts others. The financial aspect of this really is not necessary to that concept, as finances are another issue independent of the chore. There are laws of finance that would also need to be addressed with the child, and how to be more calculated with their money instead of impulsive, which most autistic kids can be. The concept that needs to be addressed first would be the benefit and the structure that the autistic kid is contributing to the working structure of the family/tribe, building responsibility to the family. The second concept is fiscal responsibility and putting down the neural tracts for saving and using money wisely.”
