Join me and my guests Helen and Elizabeth from www.SpeechblogUK.com as we brainstorm some ideas for a child with autism who doesn’t respond to anything.
Links and Notes:
- Observe the child to look for interests
- Intensive Interaction: Do what they’re doing
- Gradually introduce your own toys and promote joint attention
- Introduce AAC if needed to see what sticks
- Get the OT involved or introduce more movement
- What’s triggering the behaviors? What are they trying to communicate?
- Directions: Find something engaging to throw in a bucket
- Do therapy in school/home
- Visuals for the classroom
