Discovering Your Child’s Design

Ralph Mattson & Thom Black LifeJourney Books, D.C. Cook


Observe and Listen in terms of:
1) Utilitarian Actions
2) Developmental Actions
3) Relational Actions
4) Expressive Actions


Perceive and Record Consistencies in the areas of:

  1. Is he/she pushed or pulled into action
  2. What specifically motivates your child to action: people (who and how), external conditions, internals (ideas, desires)
  3. How much time does your child use (internal clock)
  4. To what kind of environment is your child drawn
  5. What does your child like to encounter
  6. What capabilities does your child consistently use: visual, audio, oral, mechanical, manual/physical, intellectual/mental, leadership
