I just wanted to share with you some tips that will help you if you work with children with autism in a school or home setting.
Remember that every child is different, so you will have to think about who you are working with, how does he react if you behave in a certain manner, and how does he likes or does not some techniques.
Remember: the school setting for a child is one of the most important environment when it comes to make friends and to develop his social skills.
You can use visual time tables, pictures, you can draw and you can show him what he likes on a tablet. Work thinking about his skills.
One of the most important word here is: balance. Don’t give him too many sensory activities and, especially, all together, because sometimes you can have an opposite reaction. The child might become over-stimulated and then you will need to deal with his behavior. So, think about his needs, how much time does he need to play with them and how.
Again: every child is different, don’t forget this!
