The trick is to keep trying. Step Eight: Fill Their Life With Love. In the middle of all the therapy and all the skills building, your child is still just a child.

Keep repeating to do ‘good job’, ‘good behavior’ and help the child get over the fear and anger. Ensure Quiet Surroundings: Autistic children are highly sensitive to sound. If the child is getting aggressive, take the kid away from noise, and calm down with the help of a favourite toy or items which can easily distract the attention.

Keep your autistic child engaged both indoors and outdoors. Treat them the way like any other member is treated. Take them along when you go for dinner. Prefer a family type eatery so that even if your child does not behave well it does not matter much.

use your child's name so they know you're speaking to them. keep language simple and clear. speak slowly and clearly. use simple gestures or pictures to support what you're saying. allow extra time for your child to understand what you have said. ask the autism assessment team if you can get help from a speech and language therapist (SLT)

Some creative ideas that have worked for others include: Read course descriptions from post-secondary programs; take the virtual tours to show them the dorms, the cafeteria, the gaming lab. Call the university or college they might attend one day and see if you can get a professor to meet with you and your child.

It sounds counterintuitive, but the best thing you can do for your child's long-term happiness may be to stop trying to keep her happy in the short-term.

Chase and tickle games can usually engage a reluctant youngster who isn't sure how to communicate verbally or respond in kind to a social overture. Bubbles are wonderful tools for engaging and play. Blow lots of bubbles quickly and then one big bubble slowly.

Ensure that the child has enough relaxation time. Autistic children can get stressed easily, and they need more quiet time than average. It's crucial for them to have time to play or relax all by themselves, and relaxing time with other people is good for them too. For a younger child, an adult should be nearby to keep an eye on them.
