In a reassuring, easy-to-read style, Autism 24/7 encourages parents to pinpoint times when their child's behavior or lack of skills seems to interfere with family functioning. This step helps identify what to teach your child and what goals to set. Other issues related to WHAT TO TEACH include:
Motivational Strategies and Powerful Reinforcements: Using naturally occurring rewards and token systems;
Teaching Functional Communication Skills: The difference between imitation, responding, and initiating communication, as well as how to resolve different types of communication challenges;
Creating Opportunities for Learning: Determining the steps to teach a particular skill and a routine where you can incorporate teaching the desired skill.
Issues related to HOW TO TEACH include:
Teaching Techniques: How to choose prompts (verbal, visual, physical, gestural) and how to eliminate them; shaping (rewarding gradual improvement); and video modeling
Managing Challenging Behavior: Knowing when to teach a new behavior versus when to change the environment
Evaluating What You're Doing: How to measure progress and collect data
Autism 24/7 gives families confidence and concrete tools to integrate their child with autism into life at home and in their community as much as possible.
