Strategies while caring for individuals on the spectrum

Communication is key. Speak clearly, simply and concrete. Give them time to process and ask questions. Be specific. Use Examples. Reframe from abstract phrases and sarcasm.

Have routines, be organized and give clear expectations.

Ask Questions, to check for understanding.

Try different, not harder. Find out how they learn best. Allow for breaks and focus on strengths.

Be non-judgmental, be patient, be kind and adjust your expectations.

Slow down, allow time for adjustment and alter environments if needed/when possible.
