Users can assign ratings to each service and resource and designate their favorites.
Behavioral Momentum essentially means to build up momentum to what you really want the child to do, by giving them easy tasks or demands, that they are highly likely to do first before presenting them with more difficult tasks. Instead of approaching the child with what you want them to do, you start with what they are most likely to want to do.
The Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network and partners have created these strategies and approaches for helping people on the autism spectrum.
