vary depending on how mild or severe the autism is and also varies with each different child. Which means that no child with autism is the same so it cannot be treated the same way for every child, and because of this it is crucial for the teachers to get to know each child and what they are having a hard time with in order to create an individualized educational program that is best for them.
The development of language and communication are a significant part of whether a child is going to be successful in their educational career or not. Children need to be able to communicate their thoughts with their teachers and peers and they also need to be able to follow instructions, and in order to follow these instructions, they need to be able to understand them. A great number of children who have been diagnosed with autism commonly have a great deal od difficulty with these much needed communication skills. If a child who is autistic has the ability to engage in verbal communication they might have trouble with tone, inflection, pitch or rate of speech, and this could make it tedious for them to communicate with others, and also for others to understand them. When these children cannot effectively communicate what they are trying to say, they might resort to other methods of communicating such as screaming, making noises, or using body language. While this might get their message across, it is harder to understand and interpret correctly, which is why it is important for them to learn how to communicate effectively so that they don’t have to resort to this.
There is a program that incorporates strategies for teaching both nonverbal and verbal autistic children, and it is called the augmentative and alternative communication or AAC system. This system uses many strategies for teaching communication and one of the most frequently used is sign language. Sign language has many benefits for autistic children who are learning to effectively communicate. It is often times easier to learn because many of the signs look like what they are meant to represent, it is unaided which means that the child can communicate on their own without the need of an aid, and it can be paired with speech in order to help the child learn how to verbalize the word and help them understand it. Another strategy that is used are computer-based systems which will translate symbols and pictures into speech. This works in the same way that google will if someone asks it to pronounce a word that they do not know how to. Some of these systems include the Wolf, the Alltalk, and the Introtalker.
Another obstacle that autistic children might run into is socialization. Socialization is crucial for any person because without it its almost impossible to make peers or friends, and developing social skills that are needed for most future careers cannot happen without socialization. Socialization begins in school for most people, which is why it is important for autistic children to have this experience in school. Many autistic children do not feel a need to socialize, they often prefer to be alone, they may demonstrate a lack a lack of attachment to others, and this can happen sometimes even with their parents. When these children do want to socialize it is often times for their needs and wants. This means that they will interact with someone only to get what they want. This leads to the child having the ability to make a request sooner than they learn the ability to make a comment, and this is because in order to comment, it requires the recognition of the other person’s thoughts and feelings. Children with autism usually do not experience a need to share their accomplishments and do not often share an interest for what another person feels, they are just content with pleasing themselves. In the overall autistic children have a significant difficulty learning social norms when it comes to socializing because they either do not understand the feelings of others and do not know how to relate to them, or they simply lack interest in the idea of socializing altogether.
Even though these children do not often feel the need to socialize, it is still crucial for their inclusion in a public schooling environment. These kids might have a different perspective on socializing, but this does not mean that they are wrong and in order to effectively help these children with their social skills their teachers need to understand this and try to see it from the child’s perspective. One way for teachers to help children with social interaction, is to teach them
