What you may not have known is that although your child reacts and learns great in a structured thinking studying environment, they also learn great in a structured corporal environment.
When teaching your child at home there are a few things that you should do in order to help them achieve and create at a much faster rate.
If you have the luxury of an extra room in your house that you can solely dedicate to your autistic child then you should definitely think it. If not then use one of the rooms in your house that you won’t turn very often and stays pretty much the same day in day out.
Why do this?
You see, the layout of your child’s studying environment can help or hinder how your child will develop. You may not know that even how the layout of the furniture is settled can have requisite effects of your child.
The reckon for this is that many autistic children have problems with organization. Well, I would say that most autistic children do.
Just think about what is going on in an autistic child’s mind. The transmitters that are meant to be going to a inescapable places in the brain are ending up somewhere different; the transportation that your child wants to say to you is coming out as something which they can’t control. It’s a bit of a bad dream really.
In order to teach your autistic child, who has problems with language and communication, and sometimes distraction with their environment we can use the structured corporal environment to calm them and give them approximately a ‘visual hint’ to help them learn.
Distraction can cause all form of problems for your autistic child and we need to do away with that as much as possible.
Hopefully you will as a parent be able to focus a room solely on your autistic child, but if not there are some things to be aware of:
1. Who else will be in the room when teaching happens
a. It is great to do the teaching alone at first
2. How will your lighting be arranged
a. You do not want to have too animated lights
3. You will need to have the room laid out that will be conducive to studying and fun
a. If it is not it can charge the wrong mood and have no benefits
4. Will there be lots of space?
a. Sometimes an autistic child can react badly to cramped claustrophobic spaces
b. If you are on top of each other in a room this can hinder learning
These are just small things to get your child started in a structured corporal environment. When your child becomes comfortable and starts to create skills you will need to turn small details.
Above all else when teaching your autistic child you must remember that if something doesn’t work right away you will have to modify what you are doing slightly and give it someone else try.
Helping your child recover from autism is not an exact science, but it is something which you and your flexibility with your child’s teaching can happen. Good advice and good strategies are always the best way forward.
