Desire consists of both intention and concern, thereby including interest as well.
The following is of considerable importance in helping autistic children with the development of language.

The higher desire (or feeling) of genius merges (or balances) increased intentionality of experience with increased concern in order to gain what is a fundamental extension of being, desire, thought, and experience. Given the relatively advanced consciousness (and desire) of the ideal (or highest) form of genius, experience and the self are extended and balanced at a shared and higher level of feeling, and experience becomes increasingly desirable, intentional, and concerning. Experience becomes more extensive and comprehensive as a reflection of desire, for the self then represents, forms, and experiences a comprehensive and consistent approximation of reality. Language then becomes possible in the different sensory modalities.

The comprehensiveness and consistency of both intention and concern in relation to experience in general are critical to the development and improvement of language in autism.

Please help to spread this very important news.

It helps to know that language involves the comprehensiveness and consistency of both intention and concern in relation to experience in general (including people). Knowing this helps in the development/facilitation of language. This is important --- for both autistics and non-autistics.
