Why Use The “Just Right” Challenge?

The “Just Right” Challenge is a tactic where a provider will facilitate an activity that is slightly above the individual’s performance capabilities, but is still achievable with practice.

Providing such an activity keeps the individual engaged and motivated to achieve their goal. A task they can easily complete is not productive and can quickly result in a loss of interest. A task that is too challenging may result in the individual becoming frustrated and giving up completely.
