Autism Spectrum Disorder goals for interaction

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Autism spectrum disorder is a neurological disorder affecting the autistic person’s brain; this can affect how the autistic person thinks, re-acts, acts and behaves.

Autism impairs the autistic person’s social interactions and communication skills and can cause restricted and repetitive stereotypical behaviors.

Typically kids with autism have difficulties with verbal and non-verbal communication this can impact on their abilities to socially interact.

Autism is characterized by several developmental challenges. The autism symptoms can include:  Language may develop slowly or not at all. The autistic child may use words without attaching meaning to them. They may use echolalia, and have poor attention spans.

The child with autism will probably prefer to spend time alone rather than with others, shows little interest in making friends, and be less responsive to social cues such as eye contact or smiles.

These autism symptoms impact on the autistic person’s ability to interact effectively and can cause isolation and social blunders. Consequently, when deciding on autism spectrum disorder goals for interactions these autism symptoms should first be looked at.

Typically developing children learn social skills such as social interactions naturally through play, from their peers, parents and those around them. This ability is missing in kids with autism and social skills should be taught directly.

Generally kids with autism are visual learners and will better understand any social skills teaching when taught and re-enforced visually; This is achievable using visual supports for autism such as social stories.

Using visual supports for autism can make the implementation of autism goals for interactions much easier. By careful observations parents of autistic children can determine which social interaction skills their child is finding difficult and an appropriate social skills story can be put in place to help them overcome this.

Many parents of autistic children use social skills stories to help teach social, communication, imagination and interaction skills with great success rates.

 

The social skills story is visually rich with short appropriate pieces of text set out in a specific format. Developed almost twenty years ago social skills stories are probably the most significant autism tool used to help kids with autism overcome social interaction difficulties.

“Do You Want To Home-school Your Child? And Give Them a Better Education than High Paying Private Schools Do”

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Consider the following:

  • National Studies show that 49 per cent of schools report some type of crime involving theft, vandalism or physical threats.
  • From July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009, there were 38 school-associated violent deaths in elementary and secondary schools in the United States
  • There are 100 times more  guns in the hands of American school children than is reported.
  • In 2008, among students ages 12 – 18, there were about 1.2 million victims of non-fatal crimes at school, including 619,000 thefts and 629,800 violent crimes, simple assault and serious violent crime. In 2009, 8 per cent of students reported being threatened or injured with a weapon, such as a gun, knife, or club, on school property.
  • Students age 12 to 18 were victims of 2.7 million total crimes while at school.

The results have been disappointing.  In math, our students are performing at just 3% of the world average for the same age students.  In English, that percentage jumps a little, but only to 7%.  Children in other countries are getting better educations than our own kids, and that will eventually hurt us globally.

Even if you have no college education or experience and just a high school diploma, you can still teach your child in the privacy and safety of your own home.  Hundreds of people have done it.  In fact, most home schooling parents actually DO NOT have a college degree of any type – and their children are flourishing!

* Home-schooled children score higher than their same-age counterparts on college entrance examinations.

* Home-schooled children progress to further levels of education than publicly educated children

* Home-schooled children have a stronger relationship with their family.

The advantages are amazing, and there are many more than these few we have listed.  When you home-school your child, you can easily tailor curriculum to their needs and learning style.  That adds up to an eager student and a successful school experience!
