It seems impossible to do or it can’t be. But in a way everything is hard to beat. For example, your child has been selected in the best early intervention center you wished for, and the financial resources is provided to you, he’s is in the best placeof behavioral therapy and communication and he has a full team of help desired and expected, then what?
Is your duty really over! or is it a stage where you wait for an improvement or an opportunity!!
We will start all the stages with you and guide you in every possible way:
- Search for nonverbal ways to communicate with your autistic child, at least at the beginning to establish a communication relationship between both of you. Use images or alternatives that are available because some of the autistic children have a difficulty understanding the language, translating it into the mind and implementing it.
- Identify the motives of tantrums that your child face, and it’s normal to feel upset when you misinterpret orbeingignored, often it is because you have not picked up a nonverbal references to express your child needs (anger tantrums, throwing himself or crying is a way to express frustration or lack of understanding to his or her needs or to get your attention) Never give up.
- Pay attention to the sensory problems of your child, including light, sound, texture, taste and smell, some autistic children have no sensory problems. Start by noting the sensory problems that affects him in a bad way and the provocations that have a positive effect and makesit motivated and enhanced.If you understand what affects your child, then you will be better in troubleshooting, prevent situations that causes difficulties, and create a successful experience for you and your child.
- Make your home and the environment safe and suitable for your child needs.
- Go out with your child and take him to public places no matter how tired and exhausted you are. I’m aware that there is a body exhaustion, for a long life success take things differently to be in a good shape and when your not around you have a big chance to rest, you must never give up because successful attempts are achieved by a constent recreational activities to make your child and family happy and satisfied and do not forget that an autistic child is still a child. Make the time with him always a fun time, there must be more life than treatment, identify ways to enjoy things that makes your child smile, laugh and get out of his box, playing is an essential part of learning.
- Make sure to cling to have a good relationship with families who share the same autistic cases as they are a source of empowerment and encouragement to everyone.
- “Generalization” You should generalize all the skills, even if it’s simple. If your child is able to feed himself at home, he should be able to feed himself in the restaurants and any other places.
- Set your priorities and be consistent, achieve your goals with your child, do not give up in to your surroundings.
