Keep open communication

2. Keep open communication

Children with autism sometimes have difficulties with communicating their needs, desires, or pains. You still need to make an effort to communicate with them. Find out why they are struggling with you. Some things are necessary for their world to be right. These things can make little sense to you. Don't dismiss their point of view; instead, try to work with them.

If you have trouble understanding what they're saying, ask them to say again or restate their request using different words. You might need to talk with other adults in their lives about how to communicate with your child. Teachers and doctors may have experience with other children with autism and have insight in how to talk with your own. Taking the time to learn about others' experiences can be extremely beneficial to how you view your own role in your child's care.
