As we know, every human being is unique and unrepeatable. So since birth, we have our own seal of identity when it comes to doing things, to communicate, to have fun or to relate.
We should think that, just as there are not two equal baby crying, there is no single and exemplary development in childhood. Therefore, stimulation in childhood must be personalized in children with disorders such as autism, Asperger's disease, rett disorder, etc. This is how we can stimulate children with autism.
How to stimulate a child with autism
Who has not ever preferred to play alone before sharing their doll or car? This is an introverted action that, when it is generalized and affects the child's social and communication relationships, can give way, broadly speaking, to an autistic spectrum. The question is:
How can we stimulate the child to this internalization or closure in itself? Or how can I get to play with my son? Before these questions, the word empathy appears: put yourself in the other person's place and personalize the interaction with the child. Why do we have to communicate with the child only orally? There enters the
multisensory stimulation , using all sensory channels to reach it.This is how this is applied to a child with an autism spectrum:
1. Do you like to draw?
Communicate by drawing and when you get your attention, verbalize what you draw. 2. Do you like to build? Do them next to him but
without invading his space . In this way you will be capturing their attention, stimulating. Pot 3. Powerinteraction in what you like to do
doing it with him or her. 4. If you have acoustic hypersensitivity evita, avoid crowded places.
5. To perform a task, give brief, clear and simple orders.
6. Do not do things for the child, leave him time. 7. Respecthis order and his ritual
, that is, if he prefers to keep the toys in a certain way, to do the same. This will make you empathize and be able to do tasks together.
8. Encourage im imitation to reach communication. Through the game we will reach the child better.9.
Reinforce what he does well . Reinforcers are anything the child likes and may be, among others: - Edible: Any type of food or drink.
- Tangibles: Toys or objects that by their smoothness, call the attention of the child. - Activity: Leisure activities or hobbies. They can be games.- Social: Compliments and compliments that are accompanied by caresses. Haz 10. Make pictures with drawings of basic elements to eat, bathe, dress even food. Paste them in a place where he can see them
so that he points out what he wants
. You can ask him, what is it? and name the objects yourself.
