Those hobby therapies that work are those therapies which serve as duplication exercises. Only they must be pretty remote.
So we took a little boy who was having a hard time in school and simply had him draw for us and explain what he was drawing. Don't even tell him what to draw. Just say, "Draw something and tell me what it is." This is a game. "Draw something, tell me what it is." Let him draw something else. He starts to come right on upscale. He'll eventually bother you to death every evening, he comes in and wants to draw something to tell you what it is.
That is an effort to remotely duplicate something. And all you have to do is encourage this effort. I don't care how sloppily you do it or not. Now, of course, you could direct what he was supposed to draw; you see we're getting steeper. Draw what you don't like about school. Got the idea? That's good and steep. But the funny part of it is, he would eventually come up to being able to do that.
Now, let's make a school in three dimensions.
