Acting in Shakespeare's plays helps kids with autism
A new approach adopted in the UK shows that plays written by famous British playwright William Shakespeare helps improve the social and communication skills of children with autism spectrum disorder.
Children with ASD often have trouble understanding non-spoken behaviour in social contacts and struggle to communicate.
Many avoid eye contact, which makes it difficult to form relationships and share mutual interests.
Shakespeare's plays have sentences that rhyme and there is body movement which helps kids with autism.
