Teaching tips to help students with autism
Students with autism spectrum disorders, ASD, find it difficult to focus on their studies. This makes it hard to hold their attention in the classroom.
Teachers can help such students by following a few tips.
Encourage children with ASD to exercise regularly as this helps improve motor and social skills, and helps them do better at studies.
Applying pressure treatment on the body helps keep the mind and body calm and relaxed. Weighted vests or weighted blankets are some products that can provide deep touch pressure therapy.
Toys like stress balls can help students focus by reducing their stress. The toys keep the hands busy and prevent the students from becoming restless.
