Children with certain developmental disabilities often have difficulty interacting with others or engaging in tasks they're not interested in. This can put a strain on families. But many of these kids shine when they're allowed to engage in activities they're passionate about. Researchers have learned that encouraging them to pursue their interests not only makes them happier as individuals. It can also lead to stronger connections with people around them and greater independence as adults.
