About Me

A couple of years ago, I found my autistic child locked in a small cold cement cell at his school. The cell had no windows, no furniture, and was slate gray with low lighting. The cell was also sound proofed so parents and teachers outside wouldn’t hear him crying. I am writing this blog as a campaign to change the way these children are perceived and treated in our society.

#25 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism

Category:  General guidelines when dealing with autistic children

Suggestion #25:  Role plays for them what is going to happen before they go into a new situation.
I find that my son has a very difficult time asking questions once he becomes agitated or upset.  Therefore, role playing helps him tremendously.  He is able to communicate any questions that he might have at time when he isn’t upset or over stimulated.
