How To Implement Teaching Strategies And Training For Autistic Kids

April 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

In this article I am going to tell you about implementing teaching strategies and training for autistic children. The reason I am going to tell you about this is because autistic children often have a limited learning style and struggle to adapt to new ways of learning information such as in a classroom setting.

In this article I am going to teach you

  • how to recognise the learning style of your child, and
  • how to help your autistic child adapt to a new learning style

Learning to recognise the learning style of your autistic child is the first thing you need to identify before you try to introduce any more new concepts for training your child.

For example your child may process information visually so looking at pictures, reading books and looking at how something is done will help them learn new information.

If they respond by learning using their auditory senses, then listening to someone teach, listening to a recording or to music will stimulate them to learn.

Alternatively if they are kinaesthetic learners then they respond to touch and will need movement breaks and a certain amount of "practical demonstration" for information to sink in.

Most people use at least two of the above to process information where as autistic kids seem to focus mainly on one learning style to the exclusion of the other two.

These are the areas that need to be developed and how they are developed will depend on the learning style to be worked on.

For example if your child is a visual learner, try talking about what is happening as it is happening and check periodically for comprehension. This will encourage them to develop their auditory skills where they will learn how both are related and used to learn.

If you child learns more through physical stimulation, try to incorporate visual and or auditory elements into the training so that they learn to respond to different stimuli.

If your autistic child fixates on something; to break the deadlock incorporate their interest into a story by starting off talking about what they are interested in and then deviating slightly by introducing a new twist such as "that train looks the fastest I have ever seen, I wonder would that train take us to the Zoo?" (and then talk about the Zoo).

Be persistent in trying to introduce new ideas to your child to open their minds to new things.

The above provides a general guide to implementing teaching strategies and training for autistic children, use this information to help your child learn to the very best of their ability.
