Children with autism must acquire the social and communication skills que they do not have in order to relate to their peers. They can not learn them by imitation, like other children. You have to use specific strategies for them. The ideal is a non-special education, but specialized, within the framework of a normal school.There are specialized teaching methods and techniques for children with autism because they have a special characteristic, that they are visual learners. For this reason, the image-object relationship is usually worked on, because sometimes
children with autism do not speak in part because they do not relate the words to the object or the specific meaning. However, before reaching this point, we must teach them to communicate and much earlier, to be interested in communicating, which is the most difficult. To do this, the first thing to do is to get involved in their interests, only this way you can get the attention of children with autism .Learning in school for children with autism
Children with autism go to school, either a special classroom of autism integrated in a normal school or a normal classroom with some type of support. But the rest of the day, children with autism are with parents and
it is important to structure them very well on the day que, that they know what they are going to do in advance, because they have no sense of location or time. For this reason, the agendas with photos are worked a lot with them first, and then with pictograms, so that they know when things start and when they finish. Fixed routines help them a lot and give them security. On the other hand, children with autism have a hard time generating the image associated with a word or an action, so if they see it, they can interpret it more easily. And, finally, it is convenient to leave them your little moments of self-stimulation with lights or sounds, if they need it, because they calm down a lot.The school performance of the child with autism
The school performance of children with autism depends on many factors: the affectation, when the therapy is started, how the therapy is individualized and personalized, how the parents are involved, the professionals ... and how the school and the faculty are involved. Extra work is needed in preparation of learning materials and methods and not all schools have that provision. However, the evolution of a child with autism is unpredictable, because they can become real sponges. Einstein had autism.
Autism and leisure activities and children's play
Every normal game of children like playing catch, ball, etc. that the rest of the children learn easily by imitation, children with autism have a hard time learning to play. In addition, have very restricted intereststhat, little by little, we must work to expand.
Because a very important component of life is living in society, it is essential to work for them to learn, but it is also very important that other healthy children learn how a child with autism thinks and feels and
how to get there When working with these children from a young age they can achieve total autonomy in the future.
