Autism Spectrum Disorders All You Need to
Know! t
  • According to a new report released by the Centers
    for Disease Control and Prevention, One in 68
    U.S. children has an Autism Spectrum Disorder
    (ASD), and 35 percent of young adults (ages
    1923) with autism have not had a job or received
    postgraduate education after leaving high school.
  • If youve recently learned that your child has or
    might have an autism spectrum disorder, youre
    probably wondering and worrying about what comes
    next. Listed below are some strategies that can
    help you by making life with an autistic child
  • Provide a step-by-step list of instructions for
    completing everyday activities, such as getting
    ready for school or taking a shower. A wall chart
    with pictures illustrating each step can be a
    good way to present this information. This can be
    helpful for higher-functioning children and
  • Develop a regular routine for the day, including
    set times for meals, activities, and sleep. Once
    a routine is in place, avoid changing it if
    possible. Children and adults with ASD can become
    extremely upset if their routine is changed.

  • Teach and practice social rules, such as taking
    turns and how to greet people, and provide
    opportunities for the individual to interact with
    others. Strategies such as role-playing can be a
    useful way for helping the person to learn new
    social skills.
  • Enjoy your kids special quirks, celebrate small
    successes, and stop comparing your child to
    others. Feeling unconditionally loved and
    accepted will help your child more than anything
