Helping Autistic Children Learn

            My oldest daughter works at a local public school as a
para - educator /behavioral instructor. I asked her to jot down a
few successful practices for children with learning situations,
such as autism or attention deficit disorder. We have a variety of
students at my tutoring center, so always learning and sharing
          Her recommendations are as follows:

1. Set a simple goal, like 3 problems for the student, and then take
a break. This is a goal they can achieve and feel good about.

2. Have them work for something. She said that at the school they
use a snack, a treat, they go running, etc. (We also use rewards in
my tutoring center, (chips, small toys, gum).

3. Use crayons and trace things. This is a great idea. Children love
to do this and by tracing the word or picture, he reinforces the idea
or concept. This activity has a very calming effect.

4. Use highlighter and have them trace over numbers, words, or letters.
Same concept, it serves as a repetition of the number, word, or letter.

5. If they are having a hard time sitting still, have them take a walk. I
used to have certain students who would get this way after about 30
minutes of work, so I would sent them out to the field, (I could see
them from my class), to run or throw the football. They would return
and go back to work happy.

6. Take turns doing the work. Great idea. I do this with children who
are not yet comfortable reading. I read a page, they read a page. Works

7. Keep distractions to a minimum. (Like noise, or things on the wall).
This of course is easier said than done. I have one student who this
applies to. I put nothing on my desk but essentials, and try to keep
everything as quiet as possible for him. He gets small breaks and eats
a snack. This helps him focus.

    Any of you out there who have some tips to share, please do. I can
be reached by email, or phone.
