Advice from our School Family Worker …

ASD

Short Definition:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition that involves persistent challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviours.

The three videos below give an insight as to what Autism is, and how best to understand it.

 

Jacqueline’s Useful Tips:

  • Focus on the positive and the behaviours they are doing well. It will make them (and you) feel better.
  • Stay consistent and on schedule. Implement and stick to routines.
  • Put Play on your schedule. Have fun together.
  • Give it time: try lots of different techniques.
  • Take your child with you on everyday activities, e.g. Shopping.
  • Ask for support: online, face to face, families, friends, school, complementary and talking therapies.
