Auditory autistic processing issues ARE generally associated with several autistic characteristics. Typically for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder social awareness and communication problems ARE common autistic characteristics.
For individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder communication skills both verbal and non-verbal pose problems.
Auditory autistic processing issues CAN also lead to anxiety or confusion in social situations, inattentiveness, and poor speech comprehension.
However there are methods parents and teachers can adopt which WILL HELP children with autism understand and learn social awareness and communication skills.
The vast majority of children with autism ARE VISUAL thinkers and learners which means that they use visual images as their first language and speech/words (auditory) as a second language.
Therefore many parents and teachers USE VISUAL strategies – such as visual flash cards, PECS, visual support cards and autism social skills stories.
Visual flash cards ARE used as a means of communication; they work particularly well with children on the spectrum with poor or no speech. The visual flash cards are used as communication prompts as well as social cues and communication cards.
Visual support cards ARE also a very good means of communication they are used to help the child on the spectrum understand and learn social and communication skills.
Autism social skills stories ARE probably one of the most significant resources used with children on the spectrum. They answer the ever important “wh” questions – who, where, why, when and what as well as “HOW” and WILL generally give the child on the spectrum an insight into the thoughts, feelings and emotions of others, which is an area of marked weakness in most children on the spectrum.
The social skills story acts like a visual framework or plan of the skill or communication difficulty and will give the child on the spectrum an idea of what is expected of them and in return what they should expect from others.
For many parents and teachers their child’s Auditory autistic processing issues CAN be greatly improved when visual strategies are adopted.
