Mini-post: Free Stuff Your Kid Might Like

Joseph doesn't get obsessions to the extent that some people with autism do, but he does tend to get hyper-focus on things for short periods of time (until he discovers something more interesting comes along.) Right now, he loves maps and prefers the paper ones (that he can somehow refold correctly!)

Across the street from my therapists office is a AAA location. I got a AAA membership from my folks last Christmas. I remembered that back in the old days, before MapQuest, AAA gave members free maps.

I was early today, so I stopped in to check it out. They do still give free maps to members, and guidebooks too. Maria and I loaded up on maps to give Joseph as rewards. I think we might also use a trip to AAA to pick out his own map as a special reward.
